About Dr Mahyar Shirvanimoghaddam

Dr Shirvanimoghaddam has extensive knowledge in channel coding and have developed novel rateless codes for wireless communications. He is the inventor of Analog Fountain Codes. Over the past 10 years. He has been working on channel coding related topics, which covers rateless code design, network coding, M2M communication, cooperative communications and compressed sensing.

Dr Shirvanimoghaddam has contributed to the theoretical understanding of Raptor codes and designed novel analog fountain codes for wireless channels. He has demonstrated how these codes can be used for massive machine-type communications and the Internet of Things. He has developed novel rateless codes for short packets for ultra-reliable low latency communications which considerably outperforms other existing codes.

Dr Shirvanimoghaddam received a B. Sc. degree with 1'st Class Honours from University of Tehran, Iran, in September 2008, a M. Sc. Degree with 1'st Class Honours from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, in October 2010, and a Ph.D. from The University of Sydney, Australia, in January 2015, all in Electrical Engineering. He was a research assistant at the Centre of Excellence in Telecommunications, then a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Newcastle. He is now a lecturer at the School of Electrical and Information Engineering, The University of Sydney.Dr Shirvanimoghaddam has extensive knowledge in channel coding and have developed novel rateless codes for wireless communications. He is the inventor of Analog Fountain Codes. Over the past 6 years, he has been working on channel coding related topics, which covers rateless code design, network coding, M2M communication, cooperative communications and compressed sensing. His research is supported by ARC discovery grant. He is the Young Scientist of World Economic Forum, which is annually awarded to 50 most talented young scientists in the world. Dr Shirvanimoghaddam is collaborating with world-leaders in wireless communications and coding theory. His recent project with collaboration of Prof. Sarah Johnson, The University of Newcastle, Professor Mischa Dohler, King's College London, and Dr Gianluigi Liva, German Aerospace Centre, Germany, was funded $433,122(AUD) by Australia Research Council for 2018-2020. Dr Shirvanimoghaddam is affiliated with the Centre of Telecommunications and Internet of Things at The University of Sydney. He is leading a group of several post-doc and PhD students on several projects related to the design of novel channel coding and communication strategies for the next generation of wireless communications and Internet of Things. He is closely working with Laureate Professor Branka Vucetic and Professor Yonghui Li on several projects with the theme of Ultra-reliable low latency communications.
