About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Duke University working with Prof. Benjamin C. Lee. My research focuses on the intersection of computer systems, algorithmic game theory, and economic mechanism design. I received my B.S. and M.S. in electrical and computer engineering from University of Tehran.

I am on the academic job market this year.
