Faculty Profile

Dr. Azer Reza

Assistant Professor

Department of Electrical Engineering

Dr. Syed Azer Reza completed his B.Sc in Electronic Engineering from the Ghulam Ishaq Khan In-stitute of Engineering in 2003. He completed his M.Sc in Electrical Engineering from Darmstadt Uni-versity of Applied Sciences in Germany with a specialization in microwave ceramic filter designs. He received his masters and Ph.D in Optics from the University of Central Florida specializing in Photonic Signal Processing appli-cations for communication and sensing applications. Dr. Reza worked as a post-doctoral research associate at the Laser Interferometer Space Anten-na (LISA) Labs at the University of Florida worked on the design and implementation of a test-bench to verify the relative phase performance of photodetectors that would be used in the LISA space mission. His works have appeared in more than 20 international conferences and journals.
