Ms Roshana Kamran was a Judge in a poetry competition of Us, a magazine for the youth, The NEWS International. Us  readership falls roughly between 16 to 28 years of age, and their purpose is to promote creative writing and poetry competitions. They often hold story writing and poetry writing competitions as well. This year, Us held their  poetry competition in February and invited readers to send their poems via email.  The panel comprised of three judges and Roshana Kamran was one of them. We were asked not only to judge the poems but also to advice the participant on how they can perfect their poetry. There were 20 poems that were given to Roshana, and she graded them on the basis of idea, usage of poetical devices, and on the correct usage of grammar and punctuation. The competition is announced through the magazine and their Facebook page. The winners will be announced in their May 12th issue. US magazine 1, US magazine 2

A new, MBA level-6 course, ‘Marketing Strategies & Value innovation’

was innovatively designed and delivered around a classroom ecosystem of experiential learning with a significant integrated component of project work woven through the semester:

  1. Brief 30 minutes lecture-discussion, on a concept, followed by its application in a group workshop format, followed by a week of field research and selected presentations the following week.
  2. Carefully selected case study discussions to reinforce the above.
  3. A researched case study output per group at end of semester.

Nameless learners feedback was sought at semester end. Some comments were as follows:

  • The material and teaching methodology is explicitly excellent which has increased the knowledge and experience in terms of experiential learning
  • This knowledge can be implemented very well in practical life
  • Learned new things in a practical way
  • It was a distinct course as compared to other marketing courses
  • Teacher’s style of teaching always motivated me to come in class and participate.

Teaching pricing models in Marketing

Prices are often set to satisfy demand or to reflect the ‘value’ consumers are willing to pay for a product or service. Some people say it is unethical to sell a small bottle of water for Rs. 30, or a pair of high end joggers for Rs. 5,000 or a ticket for a dinner ball at the French beach in Karachi for Rs. 30,000.

Learners are required to take a position:

A: Prices should reflect the value that consumers are willing to pay. Verses B: Prices should primarily reflect the cost involved in making the product or service.

The class breaks up in two groups for 40 minutes. Each group takes a position A or B. If an agreement cannot be reached in 5 minutes, the instructor will toss a coin. Each group jointly AND individually prepare their position, using, if necessary, the principles of pricing out of the text book that they have reviewed earlier.

When the class reassembles, some members of each group speak alternatively for 3 to 5 mins. After these persons have has delivered their arguments, the subject will be open to the floor for discussion, questions/answers. There will be an open house vote as to which group prevailed and convinced the house.The instructor concludes with a mini 15 minutes prepared lecture highlighting the key learning points that emerged from the exercise.

Alert use for learning outcomes of ‘Good Job’ and ‘Cheer Up’ cards given for learners inputs and for bringing back the detached.

    Thesis: Fundamental Limits of Clustered Cellular Systems
    Synopsis: Evaluated spectral efficiency of clustered cellular systems with uniform user distribution, which are allocated frequency bins (sub channels). The sum rate is derived using information theoretic tools. This derivation is used as input to a modified genetic algorithm which maximizes the efficiency of the system. The model is summed up with proposed applications in a realistic scenario. Moreover, mathematical framework is developed to measure efficiency and fairness. The framework enhanced resource allocation efficiency by 30%. This research is expected to assist capacity planners and network operators in making informed decisions for deployment of next generation systems.

    • Evaluated user level cellular architecture and current spectrum allocation strategies
    • Derived, solved mathematical upper bound framework for resource allocation in clustered cells
    • First author of 4 papers and 2 reports summarizing spectral efficiency gain of 30%

    Wireless communication systems has changed the way we communicate, live, interact and think. The growth of wireless communication in the last 60 years has been motivated by increasing need for increasing bandwidth and provision of multiple services as well as co existence with multiple class of services.

    Due to the scarcity of spectrum resources, there is a dire need to study the effect of spectrum sharing. Due to the energy draining nature of wireless networks, different classes of users can affect the performance of the whole wireless network. In order to increase efficiency, It is hence important to classify resources according to the quality of service and different architectures which increase efficiency.

    I study how to design effective mathematical models to simulate link between users and terminals for wireless systems using various tools. I am particularly interested in radio resource allocation for decentralized cellular networks.

    Here, I previously adapted a common heurestic using the concept of natural selection particulalry mutation and crossover and use wireless resources modelling. Consequently, my cross disciplinary interest connects engineering, applied mathematics, economic parameterization and computational biology.
