Research interests:
My research interests are in the fields of Information Theory, Wireless and Digital Communications, Medical Image Analysis and Computer Vision, and Applications of Information Theory in Life Sciences.

More specifically, I am currently working on Channel Estimation and Coding for Fading Channels with/without Feedback, Real-Time Image Registration, Optimization of Mismatched Decoding, Information Capacity of Time-Varying Fading Channels, Information Capacity of Finite-State Markov Channels, and Modeling and Information Theory of Multiple-Antenna Wireless Communications.
I received the BE and ME degrees in electrical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, and the PhD degree in electrical engineering from The University of New South Wales, Sydney. I have more than four years of industry experience in the R&D sector.

For 2007-2009, I am the recipient of the ARC grant "Model-Based Approach to Adaptive Channel Coding and Estimation for Future Wireless Systems". For my PhD, I received the Australian Postgraduate Award (APA). I also received two IEEE Region 10 paper awards (in 2003 and 2005) for my research in the information theory of time-varying fading channels.

I have visited various research institutes, including the Signal and Information Processing Laboratory, ETH, Zurich, Switzerland. I have served in the technical program committee (TPC) of ISSSTA in 2004 in Sydney and have been the reviewer of many IEEE conferences and journals.
