I am a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, University of California, Berkeley. I am being advised by Professor Javad Lavaei and Professor Somayeh Sojoudi. I have also collaborated closely with Professor Alper Atamturk.

My research focuses on developing data-driven and large-scale computational methods for societal problems. In particular, I make use of techniques in optimization theory, algorithms, and data analytics to solve massive-scale problems that stem from real-life applications, with a special focus on interconnected systems, such as energy systems.

I have received several awards, including INFORMS Data Mining Best Paper Award - Applied Track, Katta G. Murty Best Paper Award, Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award, and IEOR Faculty Fellowship Award. I was also a finalist for American Control Conference Best Paper Award.

I will be joining the Department of Industrial & Operations Engineering at the University of Michigan as an Assistant Professor in August 2020.
