Hosna Tashakkori Hashemi

MSc (Amirkabir University of Technology), BSc (Amirkabir University of Technology)

Research Title

Integrating 3D Indoor and Outdoor Navigation Systems for Emergency Response

Research Interests

Indoor and Outdoor Positioning Systems, 3D Spatial Modelling, Spatial Data Infrastructure in Safety Applications, Wireless and Ad Hoc Networks




Hosna received both her BSc (2005-2009) and MSc (2009-2001) in Information Technology Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (AUT). She worked on Peer to Peer Networks during her bachelor’s project and was awarded the best BSc project in the Department of Computer Engineering and Information Technology in 2009.
She specialised in Computer Networks during her Masters (2009-2011) and worked on Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANET), which is a key aspect of Intelligent Transportation Systems. Through this work she presented a novel method to overcome the unbalanced data traffic distribution problem in the network. The outcome of this project was presented and published in the proceedings of the 75th IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference in 2012.
In 2010 she joined the Intelligent Transportation Systems Research Institute of Amirkabir University of Technology and was involved in the “Public Transportation System Modelling” project. She also co-instructed a few courses at AUT from 2010 to 2012 and was involved in software and data modelling projects ever since.

Hosna commenced her PhD at University of Melbourne in 2013 and is currently working on integrating indoor and outdoor positioning systems in the 3D environment. The aim of the project is to facilitate way finding especially in emergency situations in order to increase public safety.
