I am an Assistant Professor of Business Analytics in the Institute for Insight at the Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University.

I received my Ph.D. and MS in Operations Research from H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE) at Georgia Institute of Technology. I received my BS and MS in Industrial Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2005 and 2007, respectively. I also received a MS in Operations Research from ISyE, Georgia Tech.

My research interests are 

  • Operations Research,
  •  Business Analytics,
  • Smart Grid Analytics and Power System Optimization,
  • Robust and Stochastic Programming, and
  • Decentralized and Distributed Optimization.

In GSU, I teach courses such as 

  • Statistical Foundations for Business Analytics, and
  • Operations Research Models and Methods.

I am also actively involved in other activities in the Institute for Insight at GSU. These activities include 

  • coordinating and organizing software bootcamps (e.g. for R, SAS and CPLEX), 
  • Friday Lab Seminars,
  • Employer Speaker Series,
  • Wednesday Evening Lecture Series, and 
  • leading the Smart Grid Analytics research group. 

Furthermore, I am coordinating the industry sprints, which are one of the core components of MS in Analytics program. In these sprints, I am managing and supervising master student teams, encouraging different solution approaches, providing special sessions for theoretical and algorithmic skills and solution techniques, interacting with the companies, helping students prepare their presentations. This experience provides a great opportunity for the students to deal with real world Analytics problems, prepare and clean raw data, learn and implement statistical, machine learning and visualization techniques, and make scientifically supported conclusions.

Before joining to GSU, I had been developing models and algorithms to solve large-scale optimization problems in power systems such as Unit Commitment and Frequency Control in a decentralized framework at Advanced Computational Electricity Systems (ACES) Lab. Before that, I was working on robust optimizations methods to deal with uncertain Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP) and Redundancy Allocation Problem (RAP).
