Profile

Biography

Morteza Varasteh received his PhD degree in Communications from Imperial College London, London, UK in 2016. In his PhD, information theoretic limits of zero-delay point-to-point transmission techniques have been investigated using tools in analysis, optimization and information theory. He was a research associate in Imperial college London from 2017 to 2019, during which he worked on the EPSRC-funded project "Simultaneous Information-Power Transfer". A number of significant results were achieved during this work, among which was the design of signalling schemes for wireless information-power transmission (WIPT) systems utilizing tools in machine learning, optimization and information theory. The designed signalling schemes are now used in prototyping WIPT systems. He is currently a lecturer (assistant professor) in the Computer Science and Electrical Engineering (CSEE) Department, University of Essex, Colchester Campus, UK. His research interests lie in the general area of information theory, machine learning, statistical learning, wireless communications, optimization theory.
