Ali Kuhestani received his Ph.D. degree (with distinction) in Electrical Engineering from the Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2017. From 2018 to 2019, he was a Post-Doctoral Researcher with the Department of Electrical Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. He was the recipient of Iran’s National Elites Foundation Award for outstanding students in 2017. He joined the Iran Telecom. Research Center (ITRC) in 2019 as a researcher. Dr. Kuhestani has also been the recipient of the scholarship for 2019 Overseas Young Scientist Forum organized by PCL, in Shenzhen, China. He is now a senior member of Microwave, Millimeter-Wave and Wireless Communication Research Laboratory at Amirkabir University of Technology. He has authored over 20 journals in prestigious publication avenues (e.g., the IEEE and IET) and about 10 papers in major conference proceedings. He also serves as a reviewer for the IEEE transactions/journals and conferences.
