The last few years have witnessed a tremendous growth of the demand for wireless services and a significant increase of the number of mobile subscribers. A recent data traffic forecast from Cisco reported that the global mobile data traffic reached 1.2 zettabytes per year in 2016, and the global IP traffic will increase nearly threefold over the next 5 years. Based on these predictions, a 127-fold increase of the IP traffic is expected from 2005 to 2021. It is also anticipated that the mobile data traffic will reach 3.3 zettabytes per year by 2021, and that the number of mobile-connected devices will reach 3.5 per capita.
With such demands for higher data rates and for better quality of service (QoS), fifth generation (5G) standardization initiatives, whose initial phase was specified in June 2018 under the umbrella of Long Term Evolution (LTE) Release 15, have been under vibrant investigation. In particular, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has identified three usage scenarios (service categories) for 5G wireless networks: (i) enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), (ii) ultra-reliable and low latency communications (uRLLC), and (iii) massive machine type communications (mMTC). The vast variety of applications for beyond 5G wireless networks has motivated the necessity of novel and more flexible physical layer (PHY) technologies, which are capable of providing higher spectral and energy efficiencies, as well as reduced transceiver implementations.

IEEE is a superb global organization with student, academic and industry members from all world regions. My priorities are to promote the technical leadership and the career advancement of all our members regardless of their country, gender, age, or cultural background. During my Presidency of SPS, I emphasized the importance of serving our members and their technical disciplines.
If elected I will work towards:
I have been an IEEE volunteer for 30 years, serving on international, technical, and educational Boards. I led the IEEE TAB effort for Africa and Education. In SPS, I drove policies to accommodate prospective conference attendees impacted by travel bans. We also introduced special programs for women, industry engineers, and young professionals. I co-founded the thriving Society for Canadian Women in Science and Technology.
I have the experience and leadership skills to enable improvements that benefit our members. I lead by consensus, consulting others, listening to all viewpoints and fostering an open, collaborative, and inclusive environment. Write to me and keep me informed of matters important to you!
