I am a software engineer in Barefoot Networks. As part of the Advanced App team, I worked on the non-traditional applications on programmable networking hardware such as Deep Insight and In-network DDoS Detection.
I got my PhD degree in Computer Engineering at USC under supervision of Ramesh Govindan and Minlan Yu in NSL from Fall 2010. I defended in July 2016, and my dissertation is about developing timely, accurate and scalable network management systems. Such systems allow operators to define high level intents and leverage efficient algorithms at the controller, switches and end-hosts. These algorithms can quickly fine tune the switches and end-hosts to keep high accuracy, drill down fast into issues, and leverage device optimizations and network knowledge to scale. I developed four systems: vCRIB (NSDI'13), DREAM (SIGCOMM'14), SCREAM (CoNEXT'15) and Trumpet (SIGCOMM'16). I got B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Information Technology Engineering in 2007 and 2010 from Sharif University of Technology (Tehran, Iran).
