I am a PhD student in Electrical Engineering:Systems at the University of Michigan, working with Prof. Demosthenis Teneketzis, where I also pursue a M.A. in Economics. Currently, I am a member of Dow Sustainability Fellows program at the University of Michigan.

I received my Master's degree in Electricial Engineering:Systems from University of Michigan, 2013, and my Bachelor's degree in Electerical 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 electrcitiy markets, stochastic control, game theory, mechanism design, network economics, and strategic learning.
