I'm 29.

I speak English, Italian and Persian.
and I 'do' Computer and Network Security!

S2, 2017

I'm on leave from UNSW Sydney and visiting The Cloud Computing and Distributed Systems (CLOUDS) Laboratory at University of Melbourne. My visit is funded by Prof. Rajkumar Buyya and I am working as Research Asisstant during this time.

What's up?

I am a PhD Candidate at Networked Systems and Security Group (NetSyS) and Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACCS) of The University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia. I am also affiliated with Network Research Group of CSIRO, Australia. I work under the supervision of Professor Sanjay Jha, Director of CySPri and NetSyS at UNSW, and Dr. Mohamed Ali (Dali) Kaafar, Research Leader at CSIRO's Data61.

Research Area: Security of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and introducing novel security services based on SDN.

Before UNSW ..

I completed an MSc in Information Security at University College London (UCL). For my graduate thesis, I worked with Distinguished Professor Yvo Desmedt. For my undergraduates, I completed a BSc in Information Technology with full Distinction and as Top Student at Heriot-Watt University of Scotland.

Other than 0s & 1s, life has gifted me the opportunity to travel and live in four different continents, each for several years. So far, I can speak Italian, Persian and English.
