I am a Ph.D. candidate at UC San Diego under supervision of Aaron Schulman working on Computer Systems and Networking. More specificly, we are developing a low-cost, high-throughput and programmable bump-in-the-wire which can add desired Software Defined Networking feature to a point in the current enterprise network comprised of legacy switches. This enables incremental deployment and we believe can bridge the gap for enterprises using the SDN capabilities. lso, we are working on making SDRs to be more efficinet for spectrum reading, and make new systems on top of this new infrastructure. We enabled fast 5GHz sweeping on a commodity SDR with ability to determine tranmission type.
Previously I was working on ASIC Clouds, where Application Specific Integrated Circuits are used for high-demanding cloud applications. We developed an infrastructure to design the TCO-optimal data-center for these clouds, as well as demonstrating how wise technology node selection can reduce NRE and reach to a more optimal TCO, including development costs. We developed a comprehensive NRE model for the first time in academic literature.
I've also evaluated performance and power tradeoffs for different architectures such as ASICs, FPGAs, DSPs, ASIPs, and server Processors. Also, I've elaborated opportunities porvided by 3D ICs for design of more efficient accelerators.
I've got my masters in computer science at UCSD, under supervision of professor Michael Taylor in computer architecture. I've got my bachelors in Electrical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, majoring in Digital Systems Design. I've also completed Technology Management and Entrepreneurism Certificate Program in Institute for the Global Entrepreneur at UC San Diego.
My fields of interest include Networking Infrastructure, Computer Architecture and Embedded Systems.
