Communication Theory Error Correction Coding Information Storage Digital Signal Processing

About

Mohammed Zaki Ahmed graduated with a Master of Engineering (Information Engineering) and a Bachelor of Engineering (Communication Engineering) from the University of Plymouth, getting both degrees in 1999. He completed his PhD at the University of Plymouth(2003) and has been employed as a lecturer there since 2001. He is currently a senior lecturer in the School of Computing and Mathematics. His research interests include 1) Communication Theory : Working on the computation of the Sphere Packing Bound and extending it to create an upper bound valid for iterative decoding. 2) Digital Signal Processing : Working on the efficient implementation of algorithms like the RLS, Viterbi and BCJR/MAP. The target computation rate is to achieve the implementation of advanced algorithms for more than 10Gbps throughput. 3) Error Correction Coding : Working on Algebraic codes (Goppa codes), especially decoding beyond the dmin using Sudan type algorithms. 4) Information Storage : Interested in the design and implementation of concatenated non-linear modulation codes and generic non-binary LDPC codes for shingled multi-track magnetic storage. He also currently manages the MEng and BEng programmes in Robotics and Electrical & Electronic Engineering.
