He was a Postdoctoral Fellow with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Toronto, sponsored by Blackberry’s advanced research team. He is the chair of the newly IEEE FNI 5G Testbed Project working to develop a virtual testing platform for E2E network innovation. His research interests include 5G and 6G networks, cloud computing, and Internet of Things. Dr. Al-Dulaimi is the editor of Future Networks Series on 5G & 6G in IEEE Vehicular Technology magazine, Editor of IEEE ITSS Series on Intelligent Autonomous Transport, Associate Editor of IEEE Communication magazine, and guest editor for many IEEE journals. He was the recipient of the 2013 Worldwide Universities Network best paper for outstanding research in cognitive communications, best IEEE/WWRF VTM best paper award for 3 times, as well as many other awards and grants. He has published many books, papers in refereed publications and patents. He is the chair of the IEEE 1932.1 ‘Standard for Licensed/Unlicensed Spectrum Interoperability in Wireless Mobile Network’.
