Hisham Abuella, a Ph.D. student at ECE, has received Green Student Initiative (GSI) fund for $2,100 for his project named "A Focus on Enhancing Energy Conservation through Occupancy Estimation". The objective of this project is to develop a control system that measures light intensity to estimate people’s occupancy in an area of interest, and then regulates building’s heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) and lightings to improve OSU sustainability and energy efficiency. 

Hisham Abuella received the B.Sc. degree in Communications and Electronics Engineering from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, in 2013. He worked as a Digital System Design Engineer in Varkon Semiconductor Company, Cairo, Egypt for one year. In Fall 2014, he joined Istanbul Sehir University as a Research Assistant for his M.Sc. degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering at Istanbul, Turkey. Lastly, he joined Oklahoma State University as a Graduate Research Assistant to pursue his Ph.D. study at the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering in Spring 2017. Hisham is currently working with Dr. Sabit Ekin at Wireless Communications Research Lab (WRCL).
