About Me

I am a PhD candidate in Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania. I work under the direction of Prof. Saswati Sarkar. My research interests include economics of networks, net-neutrality, and pricing in communications and power networks. In my reseach, I use game theory to model the interaction between deicsion makers in different markets. See my research page for a more detailed explanation of my projects, or you can find their results in my publications page.

I received a B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2011, and a M.Sc. degree in Electrical and System Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, in 2013. In addition, I am almost done with a Master's degree in Statistics from the Wharton School of Business. You can find more detailed information about me in my CV.
