Mohammad is a professor of Software Engineering at King's College London.
He got his bachelors and masters degree in Computer Engineering and Software Engineering, respectively in 1999 and 2001, from Sharif University of Technology, Iran. Subsequqnetly, he obtained
his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands in 2005.
Since then he held positions at Reykjavik University (postdoctoral researcher),
Eindhoven University of Technology (assistant and associate professor),
Delft University of Technology (guest faculty member),
Halmstad University (professor of Computer Systems Engineering),
Chalmers / University of Gothenburg (guest professor of Software Engineering), and the University of Leicester (professor of Data-Oriented Software Engineering).
He has had various leadership positions in his past appointments, such as managing educational programs, leading research teams, and leading research-centre-building initiatives.
Mohammad's main research area is in model-based testing, particularly applied to software product lines and cyber-physical systems.
He has been leading several research initiatives and industrial collaboration projects on healthcare and automotive systems their validation, verification, and certification.

We regularly engage with policy makers and the general public, write policy notes, and organise outreach activities on the theme of Trust in Autonomous Vehicles. Here you can find some examples of our outreach material:
Our research and outreach has been featured on Aljazeera, BBC Radio 4, BBC Leicester Radio, and Discovery Education (for Key Stage 2 Children). We have been actively participating in the TeenTech program, promoting science, technology, and engineering among children.
