SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY Professor of Computer Science Department of Computing and Information Technology Tel 868 483 4454 E-mail PROF. PATRICK HOSEIN Patrick Hosein attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technol- ogy where he obtained a BSc in Mathematics a BSc in Electrical Engineering a MSc in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science an Electrical Engineers degree which is an advanced industry-oriented degree and a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. During his studies he performed research in a wide variety of areas including the modeling and simulation of speechnetwork flow optimization and non-linear resource allocation. He also spent one summer at Bose Corpo- ration where he performed research under the supervision of Professor Amar Bose. Patrick has worked at several world-renowned research laboratories and collaborated with several international experts. His research has led to 38 granted and 42 pending patents as well as over peer-reviewed papers that are mainly in IEEE publications. He has won various awards but he is particularly proud of the following a Trinidad and Tobago Government Scholarship. He was nominated for the Ericsson Inventor of the year award in 2004 he was the winner of the Huawei US Wireless Research employee of the year award in 2007 and he was awarded a NIHERST Science and Technology medal in 2012. He is also a Senior Member of the IEEE and a member of the honor societies Tau Beta PiSigma Xi and Eta Kappa Nu. Patricks first job after graduation was at the famous Bell Laboratories where his focus was on scheduling and optimization algorithms. This was followed by work in congestion control and performance analysis for telecommunication networks which led to his first granted patent. In the early nineties he returned to Trinidad and was a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineer- ing at the St.Augustine Campus of The UWI.During this period he continued his research but also focused on teaching and consult- ing.He proposed and developed a new MSc degree in Communi- cation Systems for the Department. That degree together with most of the courses that were designed for itis still offered by the department today. Having used the Internet while at MIT and Bell Labs he was determined to obtain Internet access for The UWI and provided the very first Internet connection for the University. On evenings when the department FAX machine line was no longer needed he formed a dial-up connection to a University in Puerto Rico which already had Internet access. He then used this access to interconnect the UWI-wide area network.This allowedfor the first time a few students in the Computer Science Centre to browse the Web.He also set up early email services using addresses of the form Because of his early work in this area he was assigned to manage the .tt domaina function he still performs. When the local telephone company decided to become an Internet Service Provider ISPPatrick together with Ronald Lessey and Jason Arneaud Computer Science StudentsKevin Blackman an Electrical Engineering student and Dr. Feisal Mohammed a Mechanical Engineering Lecturer formed a team and together with Simon Fraser at IBM which provided the hardware was awarded the contract to develop the registration management and billing software for the ISP.This was especially rewarding since the competitors for the project were all foreign based. In the mid-nineties Patrick decided to return to Bell Laborato- ries where he resumed research on telecommunication networks before moving over to ATT Laboratories where he worked on many of the then new Internet services that were being offered. During this period he also continued to work on performance improvements for network switches and transmission lines and was granted patents in these areas. With the emergence of cellular communications Patrick decided to move into that area and so took up a research position with Ericsson at their San Diego office. This was a relatively new area for him but he quickly ramped up to the level where he was again able to produce several novel ideas for second and third generation cellular networks. His work was mainly in the area of optimizing the use of the various resources required for providing such services. When Ericsson decided to close their office in San Diego Patrick turned down relocation options and decided instead to work for a Chinese wireless vendor called Huawei.Here he worked on fourth generation networks better known as LTE.He was also involved in the standardization of the fifth generation cellular standard. With his kids off on their own Patrick decided that it was time to head back to Trinidad and Tobago and contribute to the development of Information and Communication Technologies ICT. This time he chose to join the Department of Computing and Information Technology. Because of his industry background the department head asked him to develop a new Computer Science MS. degree. He chose and developed the courses that would be relevant for todays MSc students. He has also been working with students and other faculty on various projects.In the AgriNeTT projectlead by Dr.Bernardhe created three repositories for the storage of open dataone for static dataone for spatial data and one for real-time data. He has also been working with colleagues in the Department of Electrical and Computer 108
