Hey there! Welcome to my website. I’m a PhD student in Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), advised by Professor Ali Jadbabaie. I am also affilated with the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems (LIDS). Prior to coming to MIT, I was an undergraduate student at Sharif University of Technology studying Electrical Engineering.

During my undergrad, I was very fortunate to work with Professor Marco Mondelli, and Professor Arash Amini.

Right now, I really enjoy the following research topics:

  • Networks and System Science
  • Theory of Optimization and Machine Learning
  • Causal Inference
  • Language Modeling
