I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering from UNR in 2019. Prior to joining UNR, I received my B.S. and M.S. in electrical engineering in 2011 and 2014 in Iran, respectively. I have been the recipient of several awards from University of Nevada including graduate student association research grant, outstanding international student, and Dean’s Merit Award. My Ph.D. research focuses on data science and engineering in cyber physical systems (CPS) with a special focus on energy systems. I am particularly interested in integrating high dimensional spatiotemporal datasets to infer latent dependencies of the system components, and to build predictive models for CPSs’ operations.
