Comp 7720 - Advanced Topics in Algorithms - Online Algorithms
I am an assistant professor in Department of Computer Science
. I am a part of GADA
Before joining University of Manitoba, I was a postdoctttoral associate as well as an NSERC
postdoctoreal fellow at the CSAIL
lab in MIT
My adviser was Dr. Charles Leiserson
, and I was a member of Supertech
group in CSAIL.
I completed my PhD in Algorithm & Complexity Group
in Cheriton School of Computer Science
at University of Waterloo
in Summer 2014.
I completed my Masters and B.Sc. degrees at Concordia University
and University of Tehran
I have a broad interest in design, analysis and limitations of algorithms.
I am particularly interested in online problems such as bin packing, list update, and k-Server.
My research also spans big-data applications of algorithms in text compression, graph partitioning, and resource allocation in cloud.
