I am a graduate student advised by Prof. Constantine Dovrolis. I am interested in Internet evolution, evolutionary network modeling, and adaptive video streaming. Before joining Georgia Tech in Fall 2009, I spent four wonderful years at University of Tehran completing my B.Sc. in computer engineering.
NEW: An explanatory evo-devo model for the developmental hourglass [link]
This is a very interesting article, read it! [pdf]
AdapTech Streaming demo (introduced in this paper) can be found here.
I was an intern at Cisco, boxborough during summer 2011, working with Dave Oran and the ipvs team on design and evaluation of adaptive bitrate (ABR) systems. Our goal was to build a test bed and a set of tools to study commercial or experimental ABR technologies in the future.
I have been working with Prof. Soojin Yi from the school of biology at GaTech since Spring 2011. Our goals in an ongoing project are to understand the emergence of the developmental hourglass and discover the similarities and differences between the evolutionary principles underlying biological development and engineered systems such as the Internet protocol stack.
I have been collaborating with Cisco Systems, working with Ali C. Begen on "Adaptive Video Streaming over HTTP" since Summer 2010.
I spent the summer 2008 at Technische Informatik und Rechnersysteme group in TU Clausthal, Germany working with Prof. Harald Richter on CarRing II project.
