Biography

Amna Kopic received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, in 2017 and 2019, respectively. She is a recipient of the Silver Badge award for Bachelor, and the Golden Badge award for both Bachelor and Master Program as one of the best students in her generation. She has participated in a large number of academic projects and workshops. Regarding her Master thesis, she was specifically focusing on proposing a room occupancy detection prototype system. As for her professional experience, she has participated in Ericsson Nikola Tesla Summer Camp where she worked as an intern on a project task Development of models for autonomous traffic entities. The project goal was to propose a model for collecting data from remote sensor networks based on new communication technologies. The model is integrated into an existing rail transport optimization simulation model. Summer Camp offered her great opportunity to gain experience in research and development under the guidance of specialists both from the industry and academia. In November 2019, she started working as a university teaching assistant at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Sarajevo. Her responsibility here included the preparation of teaching materials, organization of tutorials, laboratory exercises as well as teaching and interaction with students. In November 2020, she started working as a research assistant at the Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems, RWTH Aachen University. Her responsibility here includes design, development and testing of prototype system for next-generation wireless communications, participation in collaboration projects with academic and industry partners, assistance in teaching in Distributed Signal Processing research group of RWTH Aachen University. She is currently doing her Ph.D. at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, RWTH Aachen University. Her research interests include the area of digital signal processing and machine learning with applications related to wireless communication systems.
