Syed Fellowship: Syed Shah-e- Mardan Ali Rizvi joined CleanSky ITN in August 2015. He was selected for the ESR 6 fellowship and is investigating network function virtualization for saving server energy at Tsinghua University.

Bio: I received my Bachelors Degree in Telecommunication from Superior University, Lahore, Pakistan and Masters Degree in Telecommunication and Networks from Bahria University, Islamabad, Pakistan. During my studies I worked on Microchip Antenna Designs for my Bachelor Thesis and after that in my Masters I found my interest in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) so I worked on Energy Efficient Routing Protocols for Wireless Sensor Networks. After completion of my Masters I joined Superior University as a Lecturer, where I taught different subjects related to Computer Science field, such as Computer Networks, Data Communication Networks, Digital Logic and Design, Computer Structure Architecture etc. Recently for my PhD I am doing my research on an Energy Efficient approach for today’s networks which is Network Function Virtualization (NFV), where my research focus is the Forwarding Plane of the NFV infrastructure.

What’s your motivation for doing your PhD, and why within CleanSky?
In order to build my career, specially in academia where I use to teach a new generation, I found that this is the right time to go for PhD and right on time I got the best opportunity one can get regarding one’s field. I decided to take full advantage of the time and my energy to go for ESR6 position, so in those three years I can polish my skills to reach a higher level in my career.
What is your goal after finishing your PhD?
The goal is to serve Academia in future but time will decide the fate. It all depends on what opportunities are waiting for me.
