Short Bio

Toufiq received his BSc degree in electrical and electronic engineering (EEE) from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), Dhaka, Bangladesh, in 2006. He also received MSc degree in EEE from the same university in 2008. Now he is a 2nd year PhD student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department of the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada. His research supervisors are Drs. Robert Schober and Vijay K. Bhargava.
