Associate Professor Parastoo Sadeghi – Personal Web Page

Research School of Engineering
College of Engineering and Computer Science
Australian National University



Parastoo Sadeghi received the B.E. and M.E. degrees in electrical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 1995 and 1997, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from The University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, in 2006. She is currently an Associate Professor at the Research School of Engineering, The Australian National University, Canberra, Australia.

From 1997 to 2002, she worked as a Research Engineer and then as a Senior Research Engineer at Iran Communication Industries (ICI) in Tehran, Iran and at Deqx (formerly known as Clarity Eq) in Sydney, Australia.

Dr. Sadeghi has been a Senior Member of IEEE since 2007 and has co-authored more than 110 refereed journal articles or conference papers and a book on Hilbert Space Methods in Signal Processing, published by Cambridge University Press in 2013. She is a Chief Investigator in a number of Australian Research Council Discovery and Linkage Projects. In 2003 and 2005, she received two IEEE Region 10 student paper awards for her research in the information theory of time-varying fading channels. She has visited various research institutes, including the Institute for Communications Engineering, Technical University of Munich in 2008 and MIT in 2009 and 2013.

Her research interests are mainly in the areas of network coding, wireless communications systems and signal processing.
