I’m currently a graduate student at QMUL EECS advised by Gianni Antichi . I’m also working with Brent Stephens at Utah. My interests centers around computer systems, mainly operating systems and networks.

Before joining QMUL, I was a research assistant at SingArch lab of NUS SoC working with Djordje Jevdjic. I completed my bachelor’s and master’s degrees at IUST advised by Mohsen Sharifi.

I also spend a couple of months at EPFL LCA2 in 2017. I studied the availability of Electrical Grid Controllers on Xen hypervisor.
