I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Science Department at the University of Southern California. I joined Teamcore research group in January 2015 and have been advised by Prof. Milind Tambe. My research interests include exploring areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and computational game theory. I am eager to conduct interdisciplinary research that aims to address real-world challenges. Along those lines, my research has been focused on developing reliable computational tools to assist decision makers to address global challenges in sustainability and security. I have been developing models and algorithms for the security games where adversarial behavior is presented by complex machine learning models, which are aware of the uncertainty in past attack data. I have conducted a large-scale field test evaluation of adversarial behavior models in the environmental sustainability domain, in particular, wildlife poaching. Before joining USC, I obtained my Bachelor's and Master's degree in Mechanical Engineering at the Sharif University of Technology, Iran.
