I am a Senior Software Engineer at Cisco. Currently, I am working on Segment Routing (SR) for Cisco IOS-XE network operating system. SR is a new source-based routing technique that simplifies traffic engineering and management across network domains. Previously, I worked on Cisco Switch Integrated Security Features (SISF) which provides the suite of first-hop security features, e.g. device-tracking, and also Cisco Virtual Topology System (VTS) that is an overlay management and provisioning system for data center networks.

From 2015 to 2019, I was a Software Development Engineer at Nokia, in the R&D team of Network Services Platform (NSP). NSP is a carrier SDN platform that unifies service automation, network optimization and dynamic assurance for delivery of profitable, on-demand network services.

I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering with the major of Telecommunications from Khajeh Nasir Toosi University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2010. Afterwards, in 2011, I received my Master of Science degree, with distinction, in Mobile and Satellite Communications from University of Surrey, Guildford, England. Prof. Rahim Tafazolli was my supervisor in my M.Sc. studies. I worked as a researcher for one year in Institute for Communication Systems (Home of 5G Innovation Centre), University of Surrey. During this time, I was working with Dr. Ning Wang as my research supervisor. From September 2012, I have began my Ph.D. studies in Department of Systems and Computer Engineering, Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada. My Ph.D. thesis was about energy optimization for virtualized network environments. Prof. Changcheng Huang supervised my research. I have completed my Ph.D. studies in three years, in October 2015.
