About Me!

I'm a Ph.D. student at the University of Illinois at Chicago, working with Balajee Vamanan and Brent Stephens in BITS Networked Systems Lab. Before joining UIC, I completed my Master from Iran University of Science and Technology, where I was advised by Dr. Seyed Vahid Azhari.

I am interested in the field of systems and networks. My current research focuses on multi-tenant datacenter networks and low latency applications for datacenters using programmable switches. I am working at both the OS and network layers to model, design, and implement a complete system that could address major problems in the industry.
