About me

I am a Ph.D. student in the Distributed Computing Group of the division of Software and Computer Systems (SCS), EECS School of KTH, where I'm being advised by Vladimir Vlassov, Amir Payberah, and Jim Dowling. My main interest lies in the intersection of distributed systems, machine learning, and data-intensive computing.

Before starting my Ph.D. studies, I was an EIT Digital Master School scholar (2017-2019) and did my M.Sc. studies at Eindhoven University of Technology (first year) and KTH (second year). I did my internship at Logical Clocks AB, which led to my thesis, "Ablation Programming for Machine Learning".

Prior to that, I was a Big Data R&D Engineer at I did my Bachelor of Science in Computer Software Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), where I was the President of CEIT's Students' Scientific Chapter from January 2014 to March 2015.

In addition to my studies, I am also a member of EECS PhD Student Council since January 2020, where I was the Vice-chair (January 2021 - December 2022), and a representative in the New Faculty Appointment Committee, the Faculty Promotion Committee, the School Assembly of EECS, and the Council for Third-Cycle Education of EECS. I was also a member of the Nominating Committee of the PhD Chapter of KTH (May 2020 - December 2022). Outside KTH, I am the Stockholm Local Representative for the EIT Digital Alumni Foundation since January 2020.
