Mir is lecturer in wireless networking and mathematics in the Centre for Cloud Computing at Birmingham City University. He received his PhD in Wireless and Mobile Communications from Aston University, UK in 2015. Before Joining BCU in November 2016, he was a postdoctoral researcher at John Moores University, Liverpool. Mir also has previous industrial experience within the telecommunication sector as senior engineer, network management software designer and instructor.
Mir’s current responsibilities include leading the Wireless Networking and Mathematics for Computing modules MSci/BSc students on the Computing and Information Technology, Computer Networks and Computer Networks and Security programmes. Alongside this, he teaches modules on computing systems and networking.
Mir’s research activities include supervising undergraduate and postgraduate projects in the areas of network resource management and the corresponding network-side computing functionalities. His most recent work is focused on a smart integration of wireless/mobile services into enterprise in-building network solutions.
As a part of his research, Mir has delivered various algorithms for radio resource management including an algorithm adopted for 4G mobile communication systems which serves the client’s real-time streaming experience (i.e. QoE) based on the controls applied at the network-side of the service (sponsored by BlackBerry®) and a centralised multiple-function algorithm for Wi-Fi radio resource management adopted for implementation in SDWN and delivered to a Wi-5 project sponsored by EU-Horizon 2020.
