Doctoral Advisor

My PhD advisor was Dr. Abdol-Hossein Esfahanian. He is an associate professor in, and the associate chair of, the Computer Science and Engineering Department at Michigan State University. He earned his PhD from Northwesten Univsersity. We both share a great interest in applying graph theory to computer science, mathematics, and interdisciplinary engineering problems.

I was a software engineer for the United States Agency for International Development's (USAID) Global Center for Food Systems Innovation (GCFSI) as part of the Decision Support and Informatics Unit (DSI). I worked to develop systems to assist in creating data-driven solutions to global development problems with economic, environmental, and social dimensions.

Research Interests

I am deeply interested in extremal and algorithmic graph theory, and this passion drove me to earn my PhD in computer science and engineering at Michigan State Univsersity. I am always looking for exciting problems in which to apply graph theoretical approaches. I also work with big-data and recommender systems.
