Mohammad Rowshan is a research associate (or a postdoctoral researcher) in the school of electrical engineering and telecommunications (EE&T), where he serves as a co-supervisor and a casual lecturer. He received his B.Eng. (Hons) degree in electrical and electronic engineering from the University of Nottingham in 2015 (ranked 1), his M.Sc. degree in integrated circuit design engineering from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) in 2016, and eventually his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering (communications technologies) from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia in 2021. He serves as a reviewer of IEEE conferences and journals and a TPC member of conferences. His research interests include coding and information theory, signal processing for communications, and hardware architecture design though in the past few years, he has been more focused on polar codes and their variants (including code construction, precoding design, and improving their decoders), and Near-ML decoders for short codes. He is interested to work on fundamental problems, explore emerging directions and learn about other areas.
If you are looking for a supervisor:
Please note that he cannot hire a student independently as a main/primary supervisor. If your research interest falls in the field of communications engineering (in particular, signal processing for physical layer), it is recommended to contact his manager, Prof. Jinhong Yuan (email@example.com, you can CC him to firstname.lastname@example.org as well), the head of the telecommunications group in the school and the director of wireless communications lab (WCL). Please make sure you send him your CV and transcripts. You may indicate your research interests and relevant previous experiences in the email as well. If you are a fit for the position, then he or another person can probably be on your supervisory team as a secondary supervisor along with Prof. Yuan as the primary supervisor.
The fields that the researchers in WCL are working on cover theories, algorithms, machine learning models, and hardware architectures for the physical layer of communication systems, such as channel estimation, joint sensing/radar and communication, modulation, signal processing/detection, channel coding, etc.
Note that there are three rounds for scholarship application corresponding to three academic terms. For more info about the deadlines, see the key dates page.
Furthermore, please note that getting a scholarship from UNSW is quite competitive for international applicants (regardless of applying for MPhil or PhD program) and requires high grades and/or quality publications (hope it doesn't discourage you from trying). However, if you are a domestic applicant or a citizen of New Zealand, you can probably secure a scholarship much easier.
If you are a researcher in the fields of his expertise:
You are welcome to contact him to ask any questions related to his published works,
He is interested to collaborate with the people in the field and contribute effectively by taking part in the work.
If you are interested to write a review paper, he might have some ideas and contribute to your paper.
If you have come here out of curiosity or for other purposes:
Thank you for visiting his page,
If he knows you or you have met before, send an email and say hi. He will be very happy to hear from you,
He is always looking for new opportunities,
