General Information

 

Ali Parsa received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tehran, Iran, in 2011 and 2014.  He designed and implemented several systems and devices in the field of Smart Grid and Smart Home in the Mechatronics Lab. of the University of Tehran. He received the Ph.D. degree from the Department of Electrical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, Iran, in 2018. His Ph.D. research was concerned with theoretical aspects of remote estimation and control of nonlinear systems over communication channels subject to imperfections (wireless, WiFi, and the Internet) with applications in telemetry and tele-operation of autonomous vehicles. Also, he has worked in the R&D department of Crouse Co., which is the largest automotive part manufacturer in Iran, for 3 years. Currently, he is a postdoctoral researcher in the HiPeRT Lab. of the University of Modena and
Reggio Emilia (UNIMORE), Italy.
His main research areas include networked control systems, autonomous vehicles, automotive, Internet of Things (IoT), and smart home.
