I am an Assistant Professor with the Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder. I am interested in the study of complex networked systems using mathematical tools in applied probability theory, dynamics and control, optimization, and game theory. Such research program has immediate applications in the study of social networks and social influence, the study of population dynamics, and design and analysis of complex networked systems.
Prior to joining University of Colorado, I was a postdoctoral researcher with Professor Jeff Shamma's research group at Georgia Tech where I studied evolutionary game theory and evolutionary dynamics over networks. I received my Ph.D in Industrial Engineering from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign under supervision of Professor Angelia Nedich in 2011. My Ph.D. thesis was on the study of products of random stochastic matrices and distributed averaging. At University of Illinois, after my graduation, I was a postdoctoral researcher with the Coordinated Science Laboratory under supervision of Professor Cedric Langbort, Professor Olgica Milenkovic, and Professor Angelia Nedich.
I got my B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering (telecommunications) from Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran, and my M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering (coding theory) from Jacobs-University, Bremen, Germany, under supervision of Professor Werner Henkel.
