Short Biography:

I received my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and M.Sc. in Electronics (Circuit and System) from University of Tehran, Iran, in 2005 and 2008 respectively. I am currently working toward the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering at University of Southern California under supervision of Prof. Masoud Pedram. My research is in the area of VLSI design and CAD. I am specifically working on statistical timing analysis and optimization in VLSI circuits and systems.
