I was born in Iran in 1988 and received my B.Sc. in Information Technology Engineering from Tehran University in 2010, and M.Sc degree from Sharif University of Technology in 2012. I started my Ph.D. program at University at Buffalo in department of Computer Science and Engineering in 2014. Since then I’ve been working in the area of localization and mapping for robots under supervision of professor Karthik Dantu.
