About me

I am an Assistant Professor at Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Before becoming a faculty, I was a postdoctoral scholar at University of California, Berkeley. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral scholar at University of California, Davis. I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from University of California, Riverside, my Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas Tech University, and my Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology.

News! There are multiple open positions for PhD students in my research group. Interested students with strong academic background are encouraged to send me their CV.
