I am an assistant professor in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, with a joint appointment in the Systems and Information Engineering department at the University of Virginia.

Before joining UVA, I was a research staff member at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Center. I received my Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Illinois 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.

My research interests are at the intersection of computer systems dependability and data science.
I am particularly interested in data-driven resilience assessment and design of embedded and cyber-physical systems (CPS), with a focus on safety and security validation and monitoring in medical devices and systems, surgical robots, and autonomous systems.
