Vahid Montazerhodjat received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering with honors from Sharif University of Technology in 2010. Currently affiliated with the STIR group, he is pursuing his S.M./PhD degree in Electrical Engineering at MIT. Vahid is also the recipient of Irwin Mark Jacobs and Joan Klein Jacobs Presidential Fellowship at MIT for the academic year 2010-'11. His research interests lie in the area between information theory and signal processing, including statistical signal processing, high dimensional data acquisition, and compression.
At Sharif University of Technology, Vahid worked as an undergraduate researcher at the Multimedia Laboratory and the Information Systems and Security Laboratory (ISSL). During his research work, he contributed to several projects in the area of sparse signal processing and Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET), specifically proposing some deterministic sampling matrices for compressed sensing and mobility modeling of VANETs for sparse situations.
