He completed his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Porto, Portugal. His Ph.D. Thesis was on "Reliable Mobility Support in Low-Power Wireless Networks". He was a researcher at CISTER/INESC-TEC during his Ph.D. He received his Master's degree in Communication Network Engineering from University Putra Malaysia. He also worked more than 3 years in Telecom Industry as a network engineer after finishing his Bachelor's degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the University of Guilan in Iran.
I am available to supervise visiting researchers and Ph.D. students to perform their internship within the scope of sensor networks, wireless communication, IoT, 5G, CPS, SDN, and network virtualization.
Current projects and roles:
His research interests are Wireless Networks, Sensor Networks, Mobile Computing, Fog Computing, Internet of Things, software defined networking, and software defined mobile nerworks.
He was involved in many projects, such as (1) CONET European project (cluster of COTS for QoS in cooperating objects), (2) MASQOTS FCT project, (3) EMMON European project, (4) ESS-H research profile, (5) ecare@home, (6) READY. He is currently involved in the projects: (1) MobiFog, (2) FlexiHealth, (3) Health5G, and (3) FiC.
He has been serving as a reviewer in several top-notch conferences (e.g. EWSN, PWSN, RTSS, ICCPS, OPODIS, LCN, WFCS, ETFA, SIES, IOTBDS) and journals (e.g. ACM TOSN, IEEE TMC, IEEE TII, IEEE sensors, Elsevier Ad-Hoc networks, Elsevier JNCA, Elsevier PMC, Springer journal of heuristics, Springer journal on wireless networks, MDPI Sensors).
