I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. I obtained my M.Sc. degree in Mechatronics Engineering from the K. N. Toosi University of Technology (KNTU) , in Tehran, Iran, in 2015. From 2015 to 2017 I worked at Advanced Process Automation and Control (APAC) research group as a research assistant.
At UCF and as a member of the Security Analytics Research Lab (SEAL), advised by Prof. Aziz Mohaisen, I am working on various research projects in the area of network and computer security. In particular. my work covers a range of topics, from primitives and foundations to applications and translations. More precisely, I am pursuing three thrusts: 1) foundational and principled research on the security of machine/deep learning algorithms that would highlight vulnerabilities as well as potential defense strategies against adversarial attacks on machine/deep learning networks. 2) Investigating the impact and the application of adversarial machine learning in the computer and software security for both attacks and defense purposes, such as website fingerprinting, malware detection, etc. 3) Utilizing advanced machine/deep learning applications in the domain of computer, network, and software security.
More about me can be found in my CV. When not doing research I like to travel, run, and enjoy the outdoors.
Inline with my previous research topics in the feild of machine learning, I am focusing on the security aspects of machine/deep learning networks. In addition, I am utilizing advanced machine/deep learning algorithms in the domain of computer, network, and software security.
