I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. I was born in Gorgan, Iran in 1989 where I lived until 2007. I received my B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Sharif University of Technology in 2011. During my undergraduate study, I had the opportunity to work with Dr. David K. Y. Yau and Dr. Richard T. B. Ma as an intern at the Advanced Digital Sciences Center in Singapore from June to August 2010. I started my Ph.D. at UPenn under the supervision of Dr. Alejandro Ribeiro in January 2012. I received my Master's degree in Electrical Engineering from the ESE department of the University of Pennsylvania in Spring 2014. From June to August 2016, I worked with Dr. Amir Ingber, Dr. Badri Narayan Bhaskar, and Dr. Andrew Feng as a research intern in the big-data machine learning group at Yahoo!, Sunnyvale, CA. My research interests include optimization, machine learning, signal processing, and control theory.
