I am a Research Associate at the Center for Identity at the University of Texas at Austin, a leading organization in forecasting threats and delivering solutions that define and protect identity in physical and cyber spaces. I graduated with a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Software Engineering) in 2014 from the University of Texas at Austin, where I worked under the supervision of Dr. Sarfraz Khurshid. I received my MSE in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin in 2010, and my BS in Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology,Tehran, Iran in 2006. 

Here is a copy of my CV (last updated November 2019) and my PhD dissertation.

Research interests: Identity theft and fraud: data mining, probabilistic modeling, privacy policies. Bio-surveillance: social media mining. Automated software engineering: error recovery, software testing, formal specification languages.
