Biography: 

 

"Nul ne peut atteindre l’aube sans passer par le chemin de la nuit"  Khalil Gibran

Abla Kammoun was born in Sfax, Tunisia. She received the engineering degree in signal and systems from the Tunisia Polytechnic School, La Marsa, and the Master's degree and the Ph.D. degree in digital communications from Telecom Paris Tech [then Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications (ENST)]. From June 2010 to April 2012, she has been a Postdoctoral Researcher in the TSI Department, Telecom Paris Tech. Then she has been at Supélec at the Large Networks and Systems Group (LANEAS) until December 2013. Currently, she is  research scientist at KAUST university. Her research interests include performance analysis, random matrix theory, and semi-blind channel estimation.
