I'm an assistant professor in the department of Computer Science at the Texas Tech University. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of New Mexico where I worked with Prof. Majeed M. Hayat on characterization of the reliability and efficiency of computer networks and electric-cyber infrastructures. I also have a PhD minor in Mathematics from University of New Mexico, where Prof. Maria Cristina Pereyra was my Mathematics adviser. Prior to that, I received my M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology in 2009 and my B.Sc. in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in 2007.
