Dr Farah Al-Sallami


Currently, I am a lecturer in electronic and electrical engineering at the University of Leeds. I also worked as a lecturer in electrical and electronics engineering at Coventry University. Before joining Coventry University, I worked as research associate at the University of York.

I prepared assessments and delivered various electrical and electronics engineering modules, including electrical and electronic circuits, communication systems, digital signal processing programming languages and FPGA-based digital system design. This is in addition to supervising students projects at UG and PG levels. I am always keen to promote research-led teaching and projects that focus on experimental and practical implementation of novel topics.

Research interests

My research interests focus on wireless optical communications, intelligent transport systems and vehicular communications. The main goal is to develop secure communication links that support safe and green transport systems. To that end, my research is taking an interdisciplinary effort spanning cutting edge topics in traffic management, data security, artificial intelligence, and wireless optical communication.
