University of Oulu, Finland
I started my career in the beautiful city of Oulu as a postdoctoral reseacher at Center for Wireless Communications (CWC). Currently, I'm part of the “Coded Collaborative Caching for Wireless Energy Efficiency” project team, which is supervised by Professor Antti Tölli. In this project, we investigate various ascpects of practical implementation of cache-enabled multi-antenna wireless networks. Specifically, the subpacketization issue, the near-far problem, and the energy consumption of such networks is studied.
Daric Pars is a start-up company, providing DaricPay as a comprehensive payment solution for tourists travelling to Iran. I was a co-founder of this company, and had the CEO posision for three years. During this timeframe, the first version of DaricPay became operational, some contracts with strategic partners were made, and the team grew to 10 persons. I left the company and migrated to Finland, to re-experience the academic life.
As the R&D manager at ETICK Pars, I was responsible for the technical analysis of any new business opportunity in the company. Specifically, we studied novel cryptographic schemes for secure payment solutions, technical requirements for NFC-based mobile payments (which were quite new and a hot topic by the time), and technical requirements of adapting available solutions to new markets. I left ETICK Pars to found my own start-up company.
I joined ETICK Pars as a junior C++ programmer. By the time ETICK Pars was a payment solution provider for the public transportation fleet, and I had to develop highly efficient C++ codes for resource-limited embedded boards. Eventually, I became a professional programmer, actively contributing to various projects in the company. My codes are still used, by more that 5 million Iranians in their everyday life. During the time, I also promoted to become the Embedded Software Manager at Daric Pars, leading a team of 5-8 programmers for many different projects.
Thesis Title: Partial Coded Caching in Information-Centric Networks
I got my PhD from the Electrical Engineering department, under supervision of Professor Babak Khalaj and Professor Abolfazl Motahari. My research was on the optimality of caching coded file chunks in certain content-centric networks, and the results were published in IEEE Transactions on Communications, as well as some conference proceedings. Tools from Communication Theory, Information Theory and Coded Caching were mainly used.
Thesis: Resource Sharing in Mobile Clouds
I got my MSc from the Electrical Engineering department, under supervision of Professor Babak Khalaj. My research was on the possibility and optimality of sharing specific resources within nearby users in mobile networks. The results were published in some conference proceedings. Tools from Communication Theory and Game Theory were mainly used.
Thesis: Bit Error Rate Implementation Using Xilinx FPGA
I got my BSc from the Electrical Engineering department, under supervision of Professor Jawad Salehi. I did a project on bit error rate measurement over fibre-optic links, using Xilinx FPGA boards. It made a strong starting point for my later profession in embedded coding.
I'm interested in wireless networks, as they simply make the life much easier! I'm now working on coded caching implementation issues in wireless networks, specially in multi-antenna communication setups. I have an algorithmic mind, and I'm familiar with Communication Theory, Information Theory and Coding Theory. I'm also acquainted with Networking and Cryptography science.
I love travelling and connecting with people. I am a Iaido (a martial art) trainer and a good swimmer, and I'm also interested in hiking, football and volleyball. I love music, and I listen to a wide range of generes, including pop, rock and classic. I'm also much interested in cooking, and like to experience new tastes all over the world!
