Morteza Alijani

Morteza Alijani received his first M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (Communication and Systems) in 2014, and his second M.Sc. degree in Mechatronics Engineering (Robotics & Electronics) from the University of Trento, Italy, in 2022. He conducted his master's internship at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, from January to August 2021. From December 2021 onward, he worked as a research assistant at Centro Ricerche Fiat (CRF), where he completed his master's thesis titled "Cooperative positioning algorithms for autonomous vehicles based on GNSS observables sharing." In September 2022, he joined the imec-WAVES research group at the Department of Information Technology (INTEC) of Ghent University, Belgium, to pursue his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering. His primary research interests encompass visible light positioning (VLP), visible light sensing and communication (VLS/C), and IoT indoor and outdoor localization applications.
