In May 2020, Dr. Sarder Abedin arrived to Sweden from South Korea, to start his new position as a Postdoc at STC Research Center. After a two-week long quarantine, only working from home, Sarder carefully started to get acquainted with the university and his new colleagues.

Dr. Sarder Fakhrul Abedin is from Bangladesh where he did his higher secondary education. In 2010 he moved to Sweden and received his B.S. degree in Computer Science from Kristianstad University in 2013. After his graduation Sarder started a combined Master and PhD at the Kyung Hee University with full a scholarship where he later got his PhD  in Computer Engineering in February 2020.

- My topic was network resource management in 5G and Edge computing using game theory and different optimization techniques , and the title of my work was Resilient Fog Wireless Access Networks for 5G Internet of Things Applications: A Game and Transport Theoretic Approach ()

After his PhD exam Sarder received a research funding  and served as a postdoc at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Kyung Hee University.

- I applied to the postdoc position Mid Sweden University since it was an extension of my PhD-work. Now I focus on machine learning for wireless communication to investigate how we can allocate radio spectrum/resources for different 5G applications, and get a deeper understanding of the network, says Dr. Sarder Abedin.

5G and beyond, machine learning, machine intelligence are all very hot topics in the research community as well as in the industry. Dr. Sarder Abedin will be joining several research projects at Mid Sweden University such as NIIT – Next generation Industrial IoT and Remote Timber, focusing on data communication for remote controlled vehicles using 5G.

- As a postdoc, my work with the industrial IoT and machine learning will contribute to these projects. Earlier, machine learning has been used for image processing and computer vision, but we can use the same method for many different applications. For example, we need a tool like machine learning  to get a deeper understanding of the problems we face in wireless communication and solving them more reliably and more efficiently, Dr. Abedin explains.

Along with his research work, teaching will be a big part of Sarders work at Mid Sweden University. He starts this semester with teaching the stochastic process and next semester he hopes to continue  teaching more courses.

Even though Sarder has lived in Sweden before, he has not learned Swedish yet, something he hopes will change.

- I´m trying to learn Swedish now and taking  a part-time online course at SFI. Last time I lived in Sweden, I couldn’t  focus on learning the language, but now I plan to stay for a long time and so  intend to learn Swedish better. I hope it is much easier than learning Korean, Sarder ends.
