Morteza Alijani received a Bachelor's in Electrical Engineering with a specialization in Electronics in 2011 and a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering with expertise in Communication (systems) in 2014, both with first-class honours from IAU, Tehran, Iran. Between 2014 and 2019, he was a university lecturer in the department of computer and electrical engineering at the IAU in Tehran, Iran.
In 2022, he obtained his second Master's degree in Mechatronics Engineering with expertise in Robotics and Electronics from the University of Trento in Italy. He pursued his master's internship with an Erasmus fund scholarship at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, from January 2021 to August 2021. He has been a research assistant at Centro Ricerche Fiat (CRF) since December 2021, where he completed his master's thesis titled, "Cooperative positioning algorithms for autonomous vehicles based on GNSS observables sharing".
Since September 2022, he has been a doctoral researcher in the IMEC-WAVES research group at the Department of Information Technology (INTEC) of Ghent University, Belgium, where he is pursuing his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering by focusing on designing an algorithm for realizing unmodulated visible light positioning under the supervision of Prof. David Plets and Prof. Wout Joseph. His main research interests include Optical Communication, visible light communication (VLC), visible light positioning (VLP), Indoor/outdoor localization, and navigation.
