Short Biography

He received his bachelor's degree from the Electrical Engineering Department of International University of Imam Khomeini (IKIU) in 2016. His bachelor's thesis was related to Non-Orthogonal Multiple Access in 5G. In this project, he investigated the advantages, disadvantages, and challenges associated with different approaches for non-orthogonal multiple access in 5G.

He received his Master's degree from the University of Tehran. He work on "Improving Pilot Contamination on massive MIMO systems" for his master thesis. In this project, he developed and proposed new methods based on estimating the angle of arrival (by using compressed sensing approaches) for pilot allocation in Massive MIMO. Then, by using Random Access Procedures and angle of arrivals, he proposed efficient pilot allocation based on the Spatial resolution in the cellular network. He is enthusiastic about researching and teaching in the communication and mathematical fields. From September 2020 until August 2021, he worked as a teaching assistant for different courses and Labs at the University of Tehran.
