Professional Experience
School of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran, 2008-present
This is what I do when I'm not teaching or attending boring meetings!
• Semi-blind source separation algorithms
• Fetal ECG monitoring techniques
• Biological signal/system modeling
• Digital system design and software defined radio systems


Signal Processing Center, Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran, 2011-2016
This is a semi-industrial center that we founded in the university for signal processing and digital system design projects. We train students as they work on industrial sub-syetsm.
• Signal processing for industrial applications
• Digital system design and software defined radio systems


MindChild Medical, Inc., North Andover, MA, USA, 2008-present
A start-up company working on mothers' and babies' healthcare systems. Have a look at its website for further details: www.mindchild.com
• Design of algorithms for fetal ECG monitoring systems

GIPSA-lab, INPG, Grenoble, France, 2005-2008
My PhD work

Basamad Negar, Ltd., Tehran, Iran, 2001-2005
This is how I earned my living during the MS and the first year of PhD; I owe much of my experience to this job
• Design and implementation of a base-band software radio system
• Design and implementation of high rate data acquisition PCI cards
• Implementation of high rate FFT cores for FPGA platforms
• Base-band simulation of a digital receiver

Iranian Research Organization for Science & Technology (IROST), Tehran, Iran, 2000-2002
My first job, where I first believed that university was useful!
• Design of anemometry systems, based on the hotwire technique
• Implementation of a portable digital hotwire anemometry system
