I currently serve as a senior researcher & system architect on modern storage/compute platforms at High Performance Data Storage (HPDS) Corp . I am also affiliated with Sharif ICT Innovation Center . My research interests cover full spectrum of computer architecture with special focus on storage/memory architectures and hardware acceleration platforms.

Before joining HPDS , I earned a PhD degree in computer science and engineering at POSTECH in 2019. My research advisor was Prof. Jangwoo Kim and my main line of work was designing next-generation server architectures through novel integration of hardware accelerators. Our work resulted in multiple (first/co-authored) papers published in top-tier conferences (e.g., MICRO, HPCA, ISCA) and journals (e.g., IEEE CAL, ACM TACO). In particular, our HPCA 2019 work gained recognition as a "Best Paper Nominee" at HPCA, in addition to earning "Honorable Mention" at IEEE MICRO Top Picks 2019.

Before Joining POSTECH at 2013, I was a B.Sc. student in electrical engineering (focus on electronics) at Sharif University of Technology. Due to significant engineering work and some research achievements in my B.Sc. project, I received the best B.Sc. project award from the department of electrical engineering.
