Dr. Reza Asvadi (6/2023 – present)

Reza Asvadi (Senior Member, IEEE) received the B.Sc. degree (with highest honors) from K. N. Toosi University of Technology (KNTU), Tehran, Iran, in 2001, the M.Sc. degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, in 2003, and the Ph.D. degree from KNTU, in 2011, all in electrical engineering.
He is an Assistant Professor with Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, since 2016. He is currently a visiting scholar in Bilkent University, Ankara, Turkey. From 2004 to 2006, he was a Lecturer with Army Airforce University, Tehran, to fulfill his national service. He was a Post-Doctoral Researcher with the University of Oulu, Oulu, Finland, from 2012 to 2014, where he participated in many Academy of Finland and European Union (FP7) projects investigating iterative algorithms and information-theoretical bounds over new emerging wireless networks. His research interests include coding and information theory and signal processing for wireless communications.
Dr. Asvadi was a recipient of several post-doctoral research grants, including the University of Alberta (2011-2012) and Carleton University (2014-2016) Postdoctoral Fellowships. He was also an Exemplary Reviewer for IEEE Trans. Commun. in 2022.

Dr. Ruslan Morozov (7/2023 – present)

Ruslan Morozov received the M.S. degree in computer science from St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in 2014, and the Ph.D. in information theory from ITMO University (St. Petersburg, Russia) in 2020, with the supervision of professor Peter Trifonov. He worked as a senior R&D engineer in coding theory in Moscow Research Center of Huawei. He is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Bilkent University.
