My name is Alireza KhoshgoftarMonfared.
I was born in July 30th, 1986, in Tehran, Iran.
I have received my BSc from Department of Electrical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in June 2008.
Currently i am a PhD student at Department of Computer Science (CS) in Georgia Institute of Technology (GaTech), Atlanta, GA. I work with Mostafa Ammar and Ellen Zegura. We study and analyze traces of human mobility and contact in order to understand their relationships. We have also proposed algorithms to convert contact traces to mobility or other contact traces for various settings. Researchers working on human mobility, as well as those who work on wireless networks that have human beings as device carriers can benefit from this work. Our work also can be applied in social-based applications that rely on movements of individuals (aka applications in opportunistic settings).
Previously, I was a PhD student at School of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) in Georgia Institute of Technology (GaTech), Atlanta, GA. As a member of Multimedia Computing and Communication Lab (MCCL), I was working under supervision of Professor Yucel Altunbasak.
