Said Benaissa was born in Errachidia, Morocco, on September 30, 1990. He received a Master/Engineering degree in telecommunications and network engineering from the National Institute of Posts and Telecommunications, Rabat, Morocco, in July 2014. Since, December 2014, he joined wireless, acoustic, environment and expert systems (WAVES) research group of information technology (INTEC) department at Ghent University, Belgium, where he performed research on Precision Livestock Farming (PLF) in collaboration with the Flemish Research Institute for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (ILVO). He received an interdisciplinary PhD degree from Ghent University in May 2019. He has performed research on the characterization of wireless body area networks for cows. His work led to four meeting abstracts for the ISOB’16 (Leuven, Belgium), CIGR’16 (Aarhus, Denmark), PDF’16 (Leeuwarden), EUCAP’17 (Paris, France) conferences and four A1-papers published in the Comput Electron Agr, IEEE Trans. Antennas Propag, IET Electronic Letters journals (first author). He has also performed research on the use of sensors (accelerometers and localization) for behaviour and health tracking of dairy cows based on machine learning algorithms. This work led to four meeting abstracts for the EFITA’17 (Montpellier, France), ECPLF’17 (Nantes, France), CIGR’18 (Antalya, Turkey), EurAgEng’18 (Wageningen, the Netherlands) conferences and two A1-papers published in the Res Vet Sci, Appl Anim Behav Sci journals (first author) and one other A1 submission under review (J Dairy Sci). He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Ghent University/imec, where he is performing research on wireless channel characterization and PLF for animals (cows, sheep, and horse).
