Current Position:
        PhD Candidate


Navid Tadayon [S'10] received his B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering, Telecomfrom Ferdowsi University, Mashhad, Iran, in 2006, and his M.Sc. degree from University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, USA, in 2011. He is now working toward his Ph.D. at the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique-Energy, Materials, and  Telecommunications (INRS-EMT), University of Quebec, Montreal, QC, Canada. From 2008 to 2010, he was a Researcher with the Iran Telecommunication Research Center (ITRC). His research interests include resource management and QoS provisioning in cooperative wireless networks and WLANs, and cross-layer designing for static and mobile Ad-hoc networks.
