Dr.-Ing. Mahshid Mehrabi

Research Fellow

Mahshid Mehrabi is a Ph.D. student at the “Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks” at TU Dresden, working on the EU project SECRET. She has been working with the chair since March 2018.
She received her Bachelor and Master Degree in Electrical Engineering from Zanjan and Amirkabir university of technology (Tehran polytechnic), respectively. During her Master period, she developed deep interests in research on Wireless Communication Networks. Currently, she is pursuing her PhD on the topic of Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) at TU Dresden and her main interests are offloading schemes and content caching. She served as a reviewer for different conferences and journals including IEEE Communications Surveys and Tutorials and IEEE Communications Standards Magazine.
