Mohammad Ashjaei, Associate Professor, Docent

About me: I am a senior lecturer with a docent diploma at Mälardalen University (MDU) working at the Networked and Embedded Systems department. I am affiliated with the Complex Real-Time Embedded Systems (CORE) and the Heterogeneous Systems - Hardware Software Co-design (HERO) research groups. I have received my PhD degree in Computer Science and Engineering from MDH in November 2016, and after that until April 2020 I was an associate researcher at MDU. My doctoral dissertation is on resource reservation for industrial switched Ethernet networks. 

Research: Since May 2020 I am a senior lecturer at MDU in the area of data communication for embedded systems. I have received my docent diploma in Dec 2021. My main focus of research is on resource reservation in communication, where the communication can be in different context, such as automation networks, automotive networks, as well as cloud and fog communication infrastructures. I am also interested in predictability analysis, design configuration, dynamic and adaptive configurations, and software development of real-time communication networks in various domains. I have worked (and still working) in several research projects in different roles that can be found in the "Projects" section.

Teaching: Besides research I am teaching topics related to data communications in various bachelor and master courses. I am teaching distance courses in computer networks. I also have lectures in embedded systems courses, such as data communication for embedded systems, embedded systems I, embedded systems II, and distance course in IoT fundamentals. I have also given several guest lectures in Porto University, Aveiro University, Eindhoven University of Technology, Volvo Construction Equipment, HIAB.

Community services: I was a visiting researcher at Aveiro University in Portugal in 2013. During that time I have also visited Porto University in Portugal. I was a reviewer and subreviewer for many prominent journals and conferences including RTS, TII, TIE, TECS, WFCS, RTCSA, RTSS, ETFA, IECON and INDIN.
