Biography:

Kais Ben Fredj [S'08] was born in Tunis, Tunisia. He received his Diplome National d'Ingenieur (B.Sc.) from the Higher School of Communications (Sup'Com) in 2006 and the M.Sc. degree in Telecommunications from INRS, Universite du Quebec in 2009. He is currently working towards his PhD in Telecommunications at INRS. His research interests include resource allocation, OFDMA, cognitive radio, spectrum-sharing, performance analysis in fading, shadowing and composite channels, and physical network coding. Mr. Ben Fredj has received an excellency grant during his B.Sc studies in Tunisia from the Ministery of Communications and was recipient of the Tunisian Government excellency scholarship from 2007 to 2011.
