Email: <firstname>@purdue.edu

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Purdue University and Princeton 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. I was a recipient of the Barbour Scholarship in the 2014-15 academic year.

My research interests are in network economics, game theory, cyber security, optimization, and data analytics.

You can find my CV here.
