I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science at UIUC in 2011 with Prof. William Sanders (currently Dean of Engineering, CMU), and B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2006.
My research interests are in cyber-physical systems security (currently supported by NSF, DOEnergy, DOEducation, ONR, DHS, ARPA-E, AFOSR, Siemens Research, Accenture Research, GrammaTech, Fortinet, Google, ETAP and WindRiver).
My group is looking at:
Cyber-Physical Security and Privacy
Embedded/IoT Intrusion Detection and Response
Trustworthy and Efficient Artificial Intelligence
I am looking for self-motivated students with strong systems security, formal methods, and control theory background.
Non-professional activities: I train for triathlons; have completed Escape-to-Miami 2013, ITU San Diego 2014, and Palm Spring HITS Triathlon 2015.
Currently, I train for and compete in USTA Tennis League (Singles) - qualified to Nationals Competition in Las Vegas 2018.
