I am a second-year Ph.D. student in the ECE department at the University of Southern California. I am currently a member of Networked Systems Lab and very fortunate to be advised by Prof. Ramesh Govindan. Generally, I am interested in every aspect of computer networks and systems. My recent focus is on datacenter topologies, network availability, and reliability.

Before joining USC, I completed my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering at the Sharif University of Technology in 2019. During my undergraduate, I worked on the cloudification of telecommunication networks by leveraging SDN and NFV.

Feel free to drop me an email if you have any questions or want to discuss new ideas!
