Author(s)/Editor(s) Biography

Yousef S. Kavian received the B.Sc. (Hons) degree in Electronic Engineering from the Shahid Beheshti University, Tehran, Iran, in 2001, the M.Sc. degree in Control Engineering from the Amkabir University, Tehran, Iran, in 2003 and the Ph.D. degree in Electronic Engineering from the Iran University of Science and Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2007. After one year appointment at Shahid Beheshti University, in 2008 he joined the Shahid Chamran University as an Assistant Professor. He worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at Esslingen University and IAER, Germany, in 2010. His research interests include digital circuits and systems design, optical and wireless networking. Dr Kavian has over 50 technical publications including journal and conference papers and book chapters in these fields. He is a senior industrial engineer and trainer with more than 10 years industrial experiences.
Professor Zabih Ghassemlooy, CEng, Fellow of IET, Senior Member of IEEE: Received his BSc (Hons) degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the Manchester Metropolitan University in 1981, and his MSc and PhD in Optical Communications from the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST), in 1984 and 1987, respectively with Scholarships from the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, UK. From 1986-87 worked in UMIST and from 1987 to 1988 was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the City University, London. In 1988 he joined Sheffield Hallam University as a Lecturer, becoming a Reader in 1995 and a Professor in Optical Communications in 1997. From 2004 until 2012 was an Associate Dean for Research in the School of Computing, Engineering and in 2012 he became Associate Dean for Research and Innovation in the Faculty of Engineering and Environment, at Northumbria University at Newcastle, UK. He also heads the Northumbria Communications Research Laboratories within the Faculty. In 2001 he was a recipient of the Tan Chin Tuan Fellowship in Engineering from the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore to work on the photonic technology. He is the Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Optics and Applications and The Mediterranean Journal Electronics and Communications. He currently serves on the Editorial Committees of number international journals. He is the founder and the Chairman of the IEEE, IET International Symposium on Communication Systems, Network and Digital Signal Processing. His researches interests are on photonics switching, optical wireless and wired communications, visible light communications and mobile communications. He has supervised a large number of PhD students (more than 40) and has published over 440 papers (154 in journals + 11 book chapters) and presented several keynote and invited talks. He is a co-author of a CRC book on “Optical Wireless Communications – Systems and Channel Modelling with Matlab (2012); a co-editor of an IET book on “Analogue Optical Fibre Communications”. From 2004-06 he was the IEEE UK/IR Communications Chapter Secretary, the Vice-Chairman (2004-2008), the Chairman (2008-2011), and Chairman of the IET Northumbria Network (Oct 2011-). Personal Website
