Short Bio

I am an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a Research Investigator with the Intelligent Systems Center at the Missouri University of Science and Technology.

I hold a BS in electrical engineering from the Sharif University of Technology, and an MS in electrical engineering and PhD in electrical and computer engineering from Purdue University.

My current research centers on development and modeling of dependable networks and systems, with focus on critical infrastructure. My projects include research on dependability of the electric power grid, large- scale water distribution networks, and transportation infrastructures. My past and present research sponsors include the US and Missouri Departments of Transportation, the US Department of Education, the US National Security Agency, the US Army, the EU FP7 Program on Smart Monitoring of Historic Structures, and industry.

My past experience includes research and development of high availability mechanisms for the Cisco Internetwork Operating System.

I am a Fellow of the National Academy of Engineering’s Frontiers of Engineering Education Program and held a Purdue Research Foundation Fellowship throughout my doctoral studies.

I am a Senior Member of the IEEE and a member of IEEE-HKN.
