I am a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley working with Prof. Kameshwar Poolla and Prof. Pravin Varayia. I received my PhD in Electrical Engineering: Systems from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 2017, where I also received my MA in Economics in 2017 and my MSc in Electrical Engineering in 2013. I was a member of Dow Sustainability Fellows program at the University of Michigan. I received my BSc in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, 2011. I was a Silver medalist of 37th International Physics Olympiad, Singapore, 2006, and a Gold medalist of 18th National Physics Olympiad, Iran, 2005.

My research interests lie in stochastic control, reinforcement learning, game theory, market and information design, transportation networks, and electrcitiy markets.
