Rahman Doost-Mohammady

Assistant Research Professor

Rice University

I am a research faculty at Rice department of Electrical and Computer Engineering since January 2020. My broad research interests include wireless systems and networking and embedded reconfigurable computing.
Additionally, I am the technical lead for the RENEW project at Rice where we are building an open-source reconfigurable research testbed for massive MIMO.
I am also a member of Rice Wireless.
