I am a postdoctoral scholar at MIT. From Jan 2020 to Oct 2020, I was a postdoctoral scholar with Center for Autonomous Systems and Technologies (CAST) at Caltech, and a visitor at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where I worked with Team CoSTAR.
I did my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Intelligent Systems, Robotics, and Control) at UC San Diego. My advisor was Prof. Massimo Franceschetti. During my Ph.D. I also collaborated closely with Prof. Jorge Cortés, Prof. Tara Javidi, and Prof. Nikolay Atanasov. Before joining UCSD, I got two bachelor's degrees in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics at Sharif University of Technology.
My research goal is to develop scientific principles for cyber-physical systems and cloud robotics aimed at increasing the efficiency, safety, and security of these systems. I work on machine learning for dynamics and control. The fields relevant to my research are control theory, machine learning, robotics, and information theory.
