I am an Assistant Professor in the departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Systems and Information Engineering at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.

Before joining UVA, I was a research staff member at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where I worked with Ravi K. Iyer and Zbigniew Kalbarczyk in the DEPEND group within the Coordinated Science Laboratory. I obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Engineering from the University of Tehran.

I am broadly interested in data science and its application to studying the resilience of cyber-physical systems. My research takes a multi-disciplinary approach to safety and security validation and design of medical cyber-physical systems, by leveraging techniques from failure data analytics, embedded system design, natural language processing, and biomedical signal processing.
