About Me

I am an assistant professor of computer science at Sharif University of Technology-International Campus (SUTIC).  I received my M.Sc. and Ph.D. from the Sharif University of Technology in 2011 and 2017, respectively. During my Ph.D., I worked on a project to model performance analysis of 802.11p protocol for Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) under the supervision of Dr. Ali Mohammad Afshin Hemmatyar. To this aim, I developed a network model for VANETs and introduced the obligatory attachment rule to network science literature. I showed that the networks formed in VANETs present significant structural characteristics.
Moreover, I coined the graph-based performance analysis of the 802.11p protocol for VANETs. In 2018, I joined the SUTIC and was appointed as the head of the computer engineering department. Currently, I am broadly interested in data science and artificial intelligence, including the following topics:

  • machine learning on graphs 
  • graph neural networks
  • deep learning
  • network representation learning
  • analysis of social and complex dynamic networks
