About me

I am Ahmed Shareef. I am a Maldivian currently based in Croatia. A research assistant, and a PhD student. My research area is the Internet of Things and Digital Twins. Although I am scratching the surface, I am committed to exploring innovative solutions in these fields and contributing to the advancement of technology.


I completed a master’s degree from the University of the West of England. And I am seeking my PhD from the Faculty of Organization and Informatics (FOI), University of Zagreb, Croatia.


I previously worked as a lecturer at the Centre for Educational Technology and Excellence at The Maldives National University (MNU), and currently working as a Research Assistant at the Faculty of Organization and Informatics (FOI), University of Zagreb, Croatia.

In addition to my day job, I own a small tech company, Novits, where we assist clients in establishing a web presence for their company. In order to ensure they get the most out of the tech world, we offer consultation and other services.


Advancing higher education in Maldives through E-learning Development (AMED) was my first project in academia. The project was approved by the Erasmus+ programme. As on the official website, the project has the goal to enable support of the modernization approach and internationalization of high education placed in Maldives through academic teacher competencies and skills promotion, considering new innovative education programs in E-learning.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Policy Ecosystem (ORKAN). The goal of the project is to develop a research platform consisting of a control center and a four drone constellation, then use that platform to localize the drone pilot.
