As of September 2016, I am a Data Scientist at Facebook in the Core Data Science Team. In the summer of 2016, I got my PhD from the University of Southern California (USC), Information Sciences Institute (ISI) working under the supervision of Kristina Lerman. My main research interest is the study of large and complex datasets, especially data from online social networks, which includes the measurement and analysis of users' behavior in OSNs. I'm currently a Data Science intern at Facebook in Menlo Park.

Before joining USC, I got my master's from Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS), Germany. I worked with Krishna Gummadi as my advisor and also with Meeyoung Cha (KAIST) and Winter Mason (Facebook) during my master's. Before MPI, I got my bachelor's in Computer Engineering (Software) from University of Tehran, Iran.

During my Phd, I was luck to do amazing internships at Yahoo! Playa Vista, Facebook, Yahoo! Barcelona, and Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI).
