    Dr. Fauzia Ahmad received her Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering in 1997 from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. From 1998 to 2001, she held various academic positions overseas. From 2002 to 2016, she was a Research Professor and the Director of the Radar Imaging Lab with the Center for Advanced Communications, College of Engineering, Villanova University, Villanova, PA. Currently, she is an Associate Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the College of Engineering, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA.

    Dr. Ahmad's research interests lie in the areas of statistical signal and array processing, radar imaging, ultrasound imaging, waveform design and diversity, MIMO radar, passive radar, direction finding, target localization and tracking, and compressive sensing. She has seven book chapters and over 200 journal and conference papers in the aforementioned areas.

    Dr. Ahmad is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a Fellow of the International Society of Optics and Photonics (SPIE). She is the chair of the SPIE Compressive Sensing Conference Series and serves as a technical program committee member for the SPIE Radar Sensor Technology Conference and the IEEE Radar Conference. She is an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, IEEE Transactions on Aerospace and Electronic Systems, and IEEE Geoscience Remote Sensing Letters. She also serves on the Editorial board of the IET Radar, Sonar, & Navigation. Dr. Ahmad is a member of the Radar Systems Panel of the IEEE Aerospace and Electronics Systems Society, a member of the Sensor Array and Multichannel (SAM) Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, a member of the Computational Imaging Special Interest Group of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and a member of the Electrical Cluster of the Franklin Institute Committee on Science and the Arts. She served as an Associate Editor for the SPIE/IS&T Journal of Electronic Imaging from 2013-2017. She was the Lead Guest Editor of IEEE Signal Processing Magazine March-2016 Special Issue on Signal Processing for Assisted Living, the Lead Guest Editor of the IET Radar, Sonar & Navigation February-2015 Special Issue on Radar Applied to Remote Patient Monitoring and Eldercare, and the Lead Guest Editor of the SPIE/IS&T Journal of Electronic Imaging April-June 2013 Special Section on Compressive Sensing for Imaging.

    Dr. Ahmad has been a Principal Investigator and a Co-Principal Investigator on various projects with the total research awards exceeding $6.5M. These projects have been funded by the Army Research Office (ARO), Army Research Lab (ARL), Air Force Research Lab (AFRL), Office of Naval Research (ONR), Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA), National Science Foundation (NSF), and Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC).
