I am a second year Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at Heidelberg University, advised by Prof. Artur Andrzejak.  I am part of the Parallel and Distributed Systems group. I’m developing practical program analysis techniques and tools to improve software reliability and error diagnosis. 

I received my M.Sc degree at Shahed University (Tehran, Iran) in 2011 and my B.Sc degree at Shahid Chamran University (Ahwaz, Iran) in 2007. I was working on distributed storage systems using network coding (see my papers here). 

I was a regular employee in Mobile Communication Company (MCI) in Iran (before grad school).
