Right now, Kaveh is working on dynamic location-based evacuation strategies. You can find his poster here.
Research Interests: Evacuation Planning, Road Networks, GIS Applications
Kaveh was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. Up until college he never really left the neighborhood neither for school nor work. His childhood interests were computers, cosmos, basketball, and movies. Physics in college was boring at first. But eventually it grabbed his attention. At the end, he felt like he knows a tiny bit more about the Universe. Physics wasn't something he wanted to do for the rest of his life, so he moved on.
After spending a year in Magusa, Cyprus, he decided to apply for US student visa. He joined USC computer science master program in spring 2008 and immediately joined the GIS lab as a programmer. He is now a computer science PhD student at Spatial Sciences Institute.
His goal is to make people's life easier and safer through new innovative software developments.
