Mohammad Ashjaei, Assistant Professor


About me: I am a researcher and teacher at Mälardalen University (MDH) working at the Networked and Embedded Systems department. I am affiliated with the Complex Real-Time Embedded Systems (CORE) and the Heterogeneous Systems - Hardware Software Co-design (HERO) research groups. I have received my PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering from MDH in November 2016. My doctoral dissertation is on resource reservation for industrial switched Ethernet networks. 

Research: Since January 1st 2017 I am an assistant professor (forskarassistent) at MDH in the area of data communication. My main focus of research is on resource reservation in communication, where the communication can be in different context, such as automation networks, automotive networks, as well as cloud and fog communication infrastructures. I am also interested in timing analysis and software development of real-time communication networks in various domains. I am working in different research projects, such as developing predictable vehicle software utilizing time-sensitive networking (DESTINE)Federated Choreography of an Integrated Embedded Systems Software Architecture (FIESTA), Future Factories in the Cloud (FiC), and  XPRES. DESTINE focuses on advancing communication technologies for vehicles using TSN. My role in FiC and XPRES is mostly on developing novel techniques to provide reservation of network resources. 

Teaching: Besides research I am teaching topics related to data communications in various bachelor and master courses. I am teaching distance courses in computer networks, such as computer networks I, computer networks II and computer security. I also have lectures in embedded systems courses, such as data communication for embedded systems, embedded systems I, embedded systems II, and distance course in IoT fundamentals. I have also given several guest lectures in Porto University, Aveiro University, Eindhoven University of Technology and Volvo Construction Equipment.

Community services: I was a visiting researcher at Aveiro University in Portugal in 2013. During that time I have also visited Porto University in Portugal. I was a reviewer and subreviewer for many prominent journals and conferences including RTS, TII, TIE, WFCS, RTCSA, RTSS, ETFA and ECRTS.
