Assistant Professor

mirmohseni AT sharif DOT edu


Since Spring 2014, I am an assistant professor at Electrical Engineering Department, Sharif university of Technology. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, in the School of Electrical Engineering and its Networked Systems Security (NSS) Group. My research interests include different aspects of information theory, mostly focusing on molecular communication, secure communication and energy-constrained networks.

I received the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Electrical Engineering Department, Sharif University of Technology, IRAN in the field of Communication Systems in 2005, 2007 and 2012, respectively.
