I am a Research Fellow at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing at UC Berkeley for the program on Bridging Continuous and Discrete Optimization. After this program, in January 2018, I will join the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS) at MIT as a Postdoctoral Associate.

I received my B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2011. During my undergraduate study, I had the opportunity to do an internship at the Advanced Digital Sciences Center in Singapore from June to August 2010. I started my Ph.D. at the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn) in January 2012 and received my Master's and PhD degrees in Electrical & Systems Engineering in May 2014 and August 2017, respectively. I also received my Master's degree in Statistics from the Wharton School at UPenn in August 2017. From June to August 2016, I was 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.

On this page, you can find my publications, the courses that I have TAed at UPenn, and the list of my collaborators. A good snapshot of my research is my Google Scholar profile.
