Nidal Zarifeh received a diploma degree in Electronic and Communication Engineering from Damascus University, Syria, in 2006. Then, he obtained in 2012, a master degree in Advanced Telecommunication Engineering, specialized in "Mobile Communication", jointly from Telecom Bretagne, Brest, France, and Damascus university, Syria. Also he developed a practical experience in GSM, UMTS, LTE working as Radio Studies and Optimization engineer in different mobile operators. He gave Matlab courses in Signal Processing lab in Damascus university and other institutes.
Nidal joined DSV in Feb 2013, where he works in several research projects focusing on 5G mobile technologies, cognitive LTE, Massive MIMO, and Full-Duplex, towards Ph.D. degree.
Currently he is involved in COHERENT (H2020 5G-PPP project funded by European Commission).
