My previous research includes the development of a predictive model for software test coverage, which was applied to guide Y2K testing of mission-critical systems at the Department of Defense. My doctoral research involved the development of a framework for cost and quality management of component-based systems, where the aim is to achieve the highest "quality," while meeting specification thresholds and budget and timing constraints. Since completing my doctorate, I have expanded upon this work to include aspects of security and trust. A related area of my current research is dependability modeling for critical infrastructures.
I joined Missouri S&T (then UMR) in August 2004. Until December 2006, I had a joint appointment in Electrical & Computer Engineering and Information Science and Technology. Prior to joining UMR, I was a graduate research assistant at the Distributed Multimedia Systems Laboratory at Purdue University, where I conducted research on topics including Y2K testing of mission-critical defense systems, software acquisition, and enterprise engineering. From June 2002 to May 2003, I taught Linear Circuit Analysis I (ECE201) at Purdue. I worked for Cisco Systems from May 1997 to May 2000, initially as a member of the original development team for the Cisco Interactive Mentor, a series of multimedia tutorials on Cisco products and internetworking technology, and later on research and development for high availability mechanisms for the Cisco Internetwork Operating System (IOS).
I received the B.S. degree from Sharif University of Technology and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Purdue University, all in electrical engineering. I held a Purdue Research Foundation Fellowship from 1996 to 2000. In November 2009, I was selected as one of 49 fellows of the National Academy of Engineering's First Frontiers of Engineering Education Symposium.
