Mohammad Ashjaei, Assistant Professor


Mohammad Ashjaei has received his PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering from Mälardalen University (MDH) in November 2016. His doctoral dissertation is titled "Real-Time Communication over Switched Ethernet with Resource Reservation". Since January 1st 2017 he is an assistant professor (forskarassistent) at MDH in the area of data communication. Currently he is involved in the Future Factories in the Cloud project as well as in the XPRES project. In both projects his main role is to investigate novel methods in using cloud services for industrial settings. Mohammad is also involved in many bachelor and master courses, including Data Communication for Embedded Systems I & II, Embedded Systems I & II, Project in Embedded Systems and distance courses for data communication.

Mohammad was a visiting researcher for one month at Aveiro University in Portugal in 2013. During that time he has also visited Porto University in Portugal. Mohammad was a reviewer and subreviewer for many prominent journals and conferences including RTS journal, WFCS, RTCSA, RTSS, ETFA and ECRT conferences. He gave several lectures in the area of real-time embedded systems at several universities including Mälardalen University, Porto University, Aveiro University and Eindhoven University. Mohammad's main reserach interests include distributed embedded systems, real-time systems, scheduling algorithms, schedulability analyses, resource reservation in embedded systems, simulations and implementing tools to support the research.


Mohammad's main research interests are real-time systems, real-time distributed systems, scheduling algorithms on networks and processors, schedulability analyses, resource reservation, reconfiguration mechanisms. Moreover, he is interested in Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing for factory, reservation mechanisms in cloud computing and admission controls. He is also interested in implementing tools to support the mentiond research.
