Time & Date for Chicago, IL.
Tanim Mohammed Abu Taher is a fourth year PhD candidate in the department of Electrical Engineering at the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). Mr. Taher is employed as a Research Assistant (RA) at the Wireless Networks and Communications (WiNCom) research center at IIT. Mr Taher has been involved with the WiNCom center (priorly known as WIL) since January 2006.
Mr. Taher's research focuses on the collection and analysis of long term spectral data, particularly in the public safety and Land Mobile Radio (LMR) bands. The intent of his research is to examine the feasibility and potential benefits of dynamic spectrum access (DSA) techniques in the LMR band. The feasibility analysis is heavily based on real world usage data captured using the long term spectral monitoring systems at WiNCom research center at IIT. During Mr Taher's Masters Thesis, he worked on interference modeling, interference detection and mitigation techniques for common interferers like Microwave ovens and Bluetooth on Wi-Fi signals. Mr Taher has graduated with high honors during his Bachelors (3.94) and Masters degrees (4.0).
He has also worked at Arris International which is a company that controls 40% of the market share in the manufacture of Cable Internet equipment. During his short 10 week period as intern, he filed a patent for the invention of an algorithm to detect burst errors during equalization. He has significant leadership experience, and has served as the leader of small research projects teams, and also as the President of a large student organization at IIT.
