After graduation in 2005 from “National Organization for Development of Exceptional Talents” high school, Sharif University of Technology was the next destination for my studies. At Sharif University, I completed the 4-year Bachelor’s degree and 2-year Master’s degree in Industrial Engineering. In 2013, I joined the Ph.D. program in the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Lehigh University. My research interests are mainly related to designing and developing efficient algorithms for various nonlinear (convex or nonconvex) optimization problems. I work with Professor Frank E. Curtis.
