I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Information Systems Laboratory at Stanford University, hosted by Prof. Tsachy Weissman. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Communication Engineering, Technical University of Munich (TUM), hosted by Prof. Gerhard Kramer. I received my M.Sc and Ph.D. degrees in Computer and Communication Sciences from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) and my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from University of Tehran, Iran.
The primary focus of my research is to develop theoretical frameworks to address fundamental limits of data storage and communication in the next generation of cloud-based and cache-aided networks. I explore how to facilitate cooperation in networks and how to optimally exploit it. Within this framework, I investigate the inherent tradeoffs between rate, power, memory, and latency and devise near-optimal codes to approach the theoretical limits.
I have been awarded a Prospective Researcher Fellowship (2012) and an Advanced Postdoc Mobility Fellowship (2014) both from the Swiss National Science Foundation for the following projects:
