Biography

Dr. Shama Naz Islam received the PhD degree in Engineering from the Australian National University (ANU), Canberra, Australia in May, 2015. From 2010 to 2011, she had been a lecturer in the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology. In March 2016, she joined the School of Engineering at Deakin University as a lecturer. Her research interests involve efficient and reliable transmission protocol design for smart grid communication. She has 16 publications in prestigious journals and peer-reviewed conferences, including IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, IEEE Journal of Communications and Networks and IEEE Wireless Communications Letters. In 2012, she received the best student paper award in Women in Engineering category in IEEE Australia Council student paper contest. From 2009, she has been a member of IEEE, IEEE Communications Society and IEEE Women in Engineering. In 2014, she has been accredited as an associate fellow of the Higher Education Academy, UK.
