Lecturer in Computer Science, University of West London
Dr Ikram Ur Rehman is a lecturer in Computer Science at the University of West London. He obtained his PhD in Mobile healthcare (m-health) from the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing at Kingston University, London. His thesis title was 'Medical QoS and Medical QoE for Ultrasound Video Streaming over 4G and beyond Small Cell Networks'.
Ikram's expertise lies in the investigation and development of 4G and beyond network technologies, such as LTE/LTE-Advanced, Small Cells, 5G, Internet of Things and Device-to-Device communication. In addition, the exploitation of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms to assess the influence of QoS on QoE for VoIP and video traffics.
His research work provides an integration between emerging wireless communications and computing technologies for multi-disciplinary applications (e.g., Telemedicine).
Ikram has been involved in a number of m-health and tele-health projects in the areas of medical video streaming, chronic disease management, decision support systems, behavioural change management, social robotics, tele-health and tele-care, evaluation of tele-health services in UK healthcare environment.
He has built a strong academic and research portfolio through publishing state-of-the-art research outcomes in high quality IEEE conferences, Elsevier Journals and Springer book.
He also serves as a Technical Programme Committee member of several publications, and an invited speaker in a number of conferences, workshops and seminars.
