About me

I am a research scientist and a software engineer at Intelligent Information Solutions Center located in Sharif University of Technology Tehran, Iran. In IIS center, we are working on various large scale software engineering projects which deal with the development of value generating technologies for different industries.

From the research point of view, I am broadly interested in algorithm design, specially for problems on the interface between Sociology/Economics and Computation. I am also interested in devising computational methods for analyzing social, economical and biological systems. I graduated in 2015 with a PhD in Computer Engineering from the Computer Engineering Department of Sharif University of Technology, where I had the honor of being advised by prof. Jafar Habibi. My MS and BS degrees are also both from the Computer Engineering Department of Sharif University of Technology under the supervision of prof. MohammadAli Safari and prof. Mohammad Ghodsi respectively.
