What is your background?

I graduated with Ph.D. in Telecommunication Engineering from the University of Birjand, Birjand, Iran, in March 2022. I worked on radio resource management for ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC), a service type in 5G wireless systems for supporting critical IoT applications. Before that, I completed my MSc and BSc degrees in Electrical Engineering at the University of Birjand.

In the last year of my Ph.D. study, I spent six months as a visiting researcher at KTH, Stockholm, Sweden. This was my first time in Sweden, and I found it with a high standard of living and a strong welfare system. I think I couldn’t find a better than Sweden in Europe to pursue my research career as a Postdoc. As it has been at the forefront of the development of 5G technology.

What are you going to do as a postdoc at Mid Sweden University?

My research interest is to work in cutting-edge technologies in beyond-5G/6G wireless technologies suitable for critical IoT applications. Specifically, I will be working on predictive resource allocation for industrial IoT and URLLC use cases using machine learning techniques.

In addition to research activities, I will be contributing to teaching tasks as well.

Why did you choose Mid Sweden University?

There are several reasons why I chose to apply for postdoc at MIUN. Firstly, I selected this position, with Prof. Mikael Gidlund, at the  STC research center, which is a leading Scandinavian research center in Industrial IoT. Secondly, I believe this provides me with an invaluable opportunity to enrich my experience, as the university has an excellent research environment and focuses more on applied and quality research. Thirdly, Swedish nature especially in the summertime, was a compelling factor, too.

How has your time in Sundsvall been so far?

I can say that I like Sundsvall and the university so far. Sundsvall is a small and peaceful city with extremely kind and helpful people. I experienced the coldest winter of my life here, with lots of snow and short days. Nevertheless, I do believe that Sundsvall and Mid Sweden University have much more to offer than I have seen.

In my spare time, I like to go hiking and sightseeing around, and I also joined a course to start learning Swedish.
