Graduated (PhD), 2020

Mohammad Basiri

Mohammad Hossein Basiri received his Ph.D. degree (Hons.) in Electrical Engineering (joint with Systems Design Engineering)—Systems and Controls from the University of Waterloo, 2020. During his Ph.D. studies, he worked as a joint member of Real-time Embedded Software Group (RESG) and the Smart Hybrid and Electric Vehicle Systems (SHEVS) laboratory at UWaterloo. Prior to that, he received his B.Sc. degree (Hons.) from the Isfahan University of Technology (IUT), Isfahan, Iran, and his M.Sc. degree (Hons.) from the Sharif University of Technology (SUT), Tehran, Iran, both in Electrical Engineering—Systems and Controls. He also had honorable permission for simultaneous study in two majors, Electrical Engineering and Industrial Engineering as an exceptional talented student and received several scholarships during his studies. He was the winner of the travel award grant to CPSWeek, 2019, Montreal, QC, Canada. His research interests include control theory, automotive control, connected and automated vehicles, autonomous systems, cyber-physical systems, and security.

Mohammad was co-supervised by Nasser L. Azad.
