I am currently a Senior Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, the University of Melbourne. I am also affiliated with MIDAS Laboratory. Previously, I had been a McKenzie fellow at the same department from 2012 to 2014 and before that I was an ACCESS Postdoctoral Researcher at the ACCESS Linnaeus Centre, the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. I received my B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Shiraz University, Iran in 2006, and the Ph.D. degree in engineering and computer science from the Australian National University, Canberra, Australia in 2011.
See my CV and the Research Projects page for more information. To check current research fellow (postdoctoral) and PhD scholarship positions check Open Positions.
I am always looking for good students with degrees in electrical and electronic engineering, computer science, applied mathematics, or mechanical engineering with solid background in mathematics and particularly in numerical methods, differential equations, control theory, nonlinear programming, and optimisation. Students interested in doing their PhD in the general areas of systems theory, optimisation, control or any of the areas listed below should email me their expressions of interest along with their CV.
- Security and Privacy in Complex Systems
- Optimization Theory and Applications
- Networked Systems: Control and Estimation
- Smart Grids and Smart Infrastructure
A great discovery, opinions, and remembering Bruce Francis (5/18/2018) - Yesterday I discovered a page maintained by Oded Goldreich where a set of ideas, essays and opinions are posted. It is absolutely great. I particularly enjoyed: Why do people become and remain scientists – a related post by Daniel Liberzon is interesting as well.
