I was an Assistant Professor at Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College during 2005-2012.
Prior to joining Dartmouth, I was a postdoctoral scholar of control and dynamical systems at California Institute of Technology and a visiting scientist at UCLA.
I received my S.M. and Ph.D. degrees
from Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Electrical
Enginering and Computer Science in 1997 and 2001, respectively, and my B.S. degree from Sharif University in 1994.
My research interests include mobile sensor networks, distributed control and estimation, multi-robot systems, distributed inference and learning, complex networks, and human-machine networked systems. My work combines fundamental concepts and tools from robotics, control theory, networks, computer science, physics, discrete mathematics, and machine learning.
