Hanieh Aliakbari Abar was born in Tehran, Iran in October 1988. She is a PhD researcher at Communication group at the department of Electrical and Information Technology (EIT), Lund University, since January 2018. Before joining the EIT she received her MSc (2012) and PhD degree (2017) in Telecommunication Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran, both with a first class honors degree. She joined the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Information Engineering “G. Marconi” of the University of Bologna, Italy, as a visiting PhD Student in September 2015 for 9 months. She has been involved in researches regarding electromagnetic modeling of (non)linear active devices, active and passive RF/microwave and millimeter-wave circuits for wireless communication, and millimeter-wave active integrated antenna design. Hanieh is a referee in some international scientific journals and conferences such as IEEE Antennas and Wireless Propagation letters, IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques, IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation, the Wiley International Journal of RF and Microwave Computer-Aided Engineering, and the Cambridge International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies.

Her current interests are antenna design using Theory of Characteristic Modes and Massive MIMO for 5G.
