Biography

Hamed Ahmadi is a lecturer at University College Dublin, Ireland. He received his B.Sc. degree in computer engineering from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Mashhad, Iran, in 2004, M.Sc. degree in software engineering from National Aerospace University of Kharkiv (KhAI), Kharkiv, Ukraine, in 2008, and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2012. He worked as a research fellow at CONNECT/CTVR centre, Trinity College Dublin in 2012-2015.

Dr. Ahmadi's current research interests include design, analysis, and optimization of wireless communications networks, cognitive radio networks, and the application of machine learning in small cell and self-organizing networks. Dr. Ahmadi is serving several international journals as a reviewer as well as being part of several Technical Programme Committees at different worldwide conferences/congresses. In 2013, Dr. Ahmadi was selected as an exemplary reviewer of IEEE Communications Letters.
