Rafik Zayani received the Engineering, M.Sc., and Ph.D. degrees from the École Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tunis (ENIT), in 2003, 2004, and 2009, respectively. He was with the Laboratory of Communications Systems, ENIT, from 2003 to 2005. From 2004 to 2009, he was with the Department of Telecommunication and Networking, Institut Supérieur d’Informatique (ISI), Tunis, as a Contractual Assistant Professor. Since 2005, he has been with the Innov’COM Laboratory, Sup’Com School, Tunisia. Since 2009, he has also been an Assistant Professor (tenure position) with ISI, Tunisia. Since 2010, he has also been an Associate Researcher with the CEDRIC Laboratory, Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, France. He is currently an Established Researcher with long experience in multicarrier communications and energy efficiency enhancement by transmitter linearization techniques (baseband DPD) and PAPR reduction; high power amplifier characterization; neural networks; identification modeling and equalization; and MIMO technologies. He was involved in developing enhanced multicarrier waveforms, such as FBMC-OQAM, UFMC, GFDM, BF-OFDM, and WOLA-OFDM. He has contributed to several European (EMPHATIC) and French (WONG5) projects that aim at designing flexible air-interfaces for future wireless communications (5G and Beyond). He has recently been awarded a H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) Individual Fellowship Grant for his ADMA5 project proposal.
