I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT. As of 2014 I joined Prof. Asuman Ozdaglar group in the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS). My main research interests are game theory, networks, optimization and statistics.
Before coming to MIT, I received my B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Pure Mathematical Science (double major) from Sharif University of Technology in 2011. I earned a M.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT in 2013 under Superviosion of Prof. Muriel Médard and Prof. Yury Polyanskiy.
