From 2020 to 2022, I was a Senior Research Scientist at University of Texas at Arlington Research Institute (UTARI), with a joint Assistant Professor of Research appointment at the Electrical Engineering department of UT Arlington. Before joining UTARI, I was a Post-Doctoral Fellow at both the University of Georgia and the Qatar University (Qatar), and a Visiting Researcher at the Concordia University (Canada). I received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Tarbiat Modares University (Iran) in 2008 and 2012, respectively.
