Short Bio: I am an Assistant Professor at the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department of the University of Kansas. I received my MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Boston University in 2013 and 2015, and my BSc degree from Sharif University of Technology. I was a postdoctoral researcher and senior lecturer at the Ohio State University 2015-2018. My research interest spans the areas of wireless and mmWave communication, networked systems, and applications of machine learning in these areas. 


  • Multiple PhD and MS positions available for Fall 2020. 
  • I am always looking for motivated PhD and MS students to join my group. Research areas include communication and networked systems, wireless communication, and applications of machine learning. If interested, please send me an email with your CV and transcripts.
