Mohammed (known Ali to friends) is a professor in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering with the main research interest in the areas of Video Networking (more details of our Lab activity can be found in a set of slides in http://www.essex.ac.uk/csee/research/vidnet_lab/ ). He graduated from Sharif (Aryamehr)
He is best known for his pioneering work on layered video coding (which earned him IEEE Fellowship in 2001), now is known as SNR scalability in the standard video codecs. He has registered for eleven international patents and has published more than 550 technical articles on various aspects of video networking. Many of his pioneering works, such as scalable coding, motion estimation, transcoding and video quality metrics, have fundamental impacts in video research community. He has authored/co-authored 6 books and edited a book, where his book Video coding: an introduction to standard codecs, published by IET press in 1999, received the year 2000 best book award by IET. The third edition of this book , under the name of Standard codecs: Image compression to advanced video coding will be available in January 2011.
