PhD Candidate

About Me

Anzal did her bachelor's in Telecommunication Engineering from Mehran University of Engineering and Technology, Jamshoro, Pakistan in 2017. After graduation, she started to work for a leading telecommunication company i.e. Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited (Etisalat) in Pakistan. In 2018, she was awarded with the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Joint Master's degree (EMJMD) scholarship in the program "Photonic Integrated Circuits, Sensors and NETworks - PIXNET". She undertook her master's studies at Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Italy and Aston University, the UK  from 2018-2020. Anzal carried out her master's thesis at Osaka University, and worked on the topic of "Gain Clamped Semiconductor Optical Amplifier".
