I was born in a small town in the north of Iran. I received my BSc. and MSc. degrees from University of Tehran both in Electrical Engineering. My Master thesis was focused on clock and data recovery schemes for high speed serial links. During my Master studies (2012), I also did a six month DAAD funded research collaboration with University of Rostock, Germany, on the optical Networks on Chip. In 2015, I joined the Computer Architecture for Embedded Systems (CAES) research group, University of Twente, as a PhD candidate. During my PhD I investigated signal processing in digital receivers for UNB communications and Low Power Wide Area Networks (LPWANs). After my PhD in 2020, I joined the Radio Systems (RS) group as an Assistant Professor.
My general research area is signal processing for communication systems including low power IoT and enabling technologies for 5G and beyond such as (ultra) massive MIMO, cell-free massive MIMO, mmWave/THz and UAV assisted communications. Furthermore, I am interested in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and learning algorithms in future generations of wireless communications (specially in PHY layer). I enjoy investigating signal processing algorithms as well as their efficient implementation while considering the effects/requirements of RF front-end and digital hardware.
