About Me

I am a PhD student of CIS Department of University of Pennsylvania. I am fortunate to be advised by Sanjeev Khanna. Prior to my enrollment at Penn, I got my B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from CE Department, Sharif University of Technology, Iran.

My academic interests mainly lie in theoretical aspects of computer science including design and analysis of algorithms for combinatorial optimization problems and complexity theory. You can find more detailed information about my academic life in Academic section.


One of my main hobbies is mountain hiking and climbing. Beside that I have tried lots of different sports and enjoyed most of them. I also like traveling a lot. Finally, as a computer science student I spent most of my spare time by my laptop and one of my interests is participating in programming contests such as Code forces and SGU .
