I'm a PhD student at the Department of Computer Science,
University of British Columbia, in Vancouver, Canada.
I enjoy doing research and solving [preferably math-related] problems. In the past 10 years, I've been mostly focused on
designing algorithms and proving theorems in the areas of Game Theory and Bioinformatics.
Currently, I'm working on matching related problems. In particular, I'm designing an interview
scheduling system for two-sided markets (e.g., a market in which schools admit students or hire faculty members). Also, I'm tackling the two-body problem, which is prevalent in academia.
Previously, I worked on characterizing the revenue properties of combinatorial auctions.
My supervisors are Anne Condon and Kevin Leyton-Brown.
I'm a member of the Laboratory for Computational Intelligence (LCI) and the Bioinformatics, Empirical & Theoretical Algorithms Laboratory (BETA-Lab).
I organize the Game Theory - Decision Theory (GT-DT) reading group.
I'm a member of UBC Persian Music Ensemble.
