I am currently a fifth year PhD student in the
department of Computer & Information Sciences at University of Pennsylvania, affilated
with the Theory Research Group. I am very fortunate to have Sanjeev Khanna as my advisor.
Prior to my enrollment at Penn, I got my B.Sc. degree in Computer Engineering from department of Computer Engineering at
Sharif University of Technology, Iran.
My primary research interest is in theoretical foundations of big data analysis and in particular streaming and distributed algorithms and lower bounds. I am also interested in the areas of approximation and online algorithms, communication complexity, and algorithmic game theory.
