I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT, advised by Professor Asuman Ozdaglar. My research interest is in optimization, theory of machine-learning, Game Theory, and statistical inference. My research is currently supported by the Apple Scholars in AI/ML PhD fellowship. I have also been the recipient of the MathWorks Engineering Fellowship and Siebel Scholarship.

Before coming to MIT, I earned a dual B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics from Sharif University of Technology. I also spent a summer at EPFL as an intern, working on sparse stochastic processes in the Biomedical Imaging Group.
