Postdoctoral Researcher

Purdue University and Princeton University Edge Lab

Email: <firstname>@purdue.edu

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Purdue University and Princeton University Edge Lab working with Prof. Mung Chiang. Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan in the group of Prof. Mingyan Liu, where I also received my PhD in electrical engineering in 2016. I received my MSc in electrical engineering with a minor in microeconomics, and a MSc in mathematics, both from the University of Michigan, in 2013 and 2014, respectively, and my BSc in electrical engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran, in 2010.

My research interests are in network economics, game theory, learning theory, reinforcement learning, and data analytics, with applications in cyber security and edge computing.

I am on the academic job market this year.

Here are links to my CV and Google Scholar.
