I am a lecturer (assistant professor) in the Agents, Interaction and Complexity (AIC) research group at the School of Electronics and Computer Science, University of Southampton. I enjoy doing research and solving [preferably math-related] problems. Since 2003 I have been mostly focused on designing algorithms and proving theorems in the areas of Game Theory and Bioinformatics. My current research interests include computational social choice and algorithmic mechanism design with particular focus on matching theory.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada, in 2013. My Ph.D. advisers were Anne Condon and Kevin Leyton-Brown. I also hold an M.Sc. in Computer Science from UBC, 2004, and a B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, 2002.

From 2013 to 2016, I was a postdoctoral research associate at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow. I was working with David Manlove on Efficient Algorithms for Mechanism Design Without Monetary Transfer, a joint EPSRC project between the University of Glasgow and the University of Liverpool. I was a lecturer at the Department of Computer Science, University of Bristol from April 2017 to August 2018.
