Salman Durrani received the B.Sc. (1st class honours) degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Engineering & Technology, Lahore, Pakistan in 2000. He received the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia in December 2004. He has been with The Australian National University (ANU), Canberra, Australia, since 2005, where he is currently Associate Professor in the School of Engineering, College of Engineering & Computer Science.
Dr Durrani has supervised 75 students to date, including 3 Postdoctoral Research Fellows, 13 PhD students (7 graduated), 6 ME Hons students, 21 BE R&D students and 32 BE Hons students. His research interests are in wireless communications and signal processing, including machine-to-machine and device-to-device communication, wireless energy harvesting systems, stochastic geometry modelling of finite area networks and synchronization in communication systems. He has co-authored more than 140 publications to date in refereed international journals and conferences. He was a recipient of the 2016 IEEE ComSoc Asia Pacific Outstanding Paper Award. He was the Chair of the ACT Chapter of the IEEE Signal Processing and Communications Societies from 2015 to 2016. He currently serves as an Editor of the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON COMMUNICATIONS. He was awarded the 2018 ANU VC Award for Excellence in Supervision and the 2012 ANU VC Award for Excellence in Education. He is a Member of Engineers Australia, a Senior Fellow of IEEE, USA and a Senior Fellow of The Higher Education Academy, UK.
