I am a Ph.D. candidate of Computer Science at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in University of California, Riverside. I work on various aspects of networks, formal methods, and distributed systems, more recent focusing on Information-Centric and Name-based Networking, advised by Prof. K. K. Ramakrishnan. I obtained my M.Sc. degree Sharif University of Technology in 2014 and my B.Sc. degree from University of Tehran in 2012 in Iran.
