PhD Student

Office: GS 710

Interests: Machine Learning


I was born in Adelaide, Australia, when my father was a PhD student at the University of Adelaide. After having wonderful years in Australia, we moved back to Iran, and my father started his profession as a professor at the University of Zanjan, where I got my BSc in Electrical Engineering, Communication Systems. Right after, I went to France and spent one year as an MSc student at IMT Atlantique (Télécom Bretagne), Brest, in the same field. After that, I came back to Iran and started another MSc program at Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran, Iran, in Electrical Engineering, Communication Systems. Just after I finished my MSc program, I came to the United States to start my PhD.

Currently, I am a first-year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Arizona under the supervision of Professor Mihai Surdeanu.
