I received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Tehran, Tehran Iran, in 2009 and 2011, respectively and the Ph.D. degree from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2016. From April 2016 to October 2017, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at EPFL.

I have been the recipient of numerous awards including the Distinguished Ph.D. Thesis Award of EPFL, Best Paper Award of the IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility, Basil Papadias Best Paper Award at the IEEE PowerTech conference in 2013, and the Best Paper Award at the ASAIEM conference in 2017. My work on the Electromagnetic Time Reversal has led to a commercialised patent.

My current research interests include smart grids, power system protection and control, phasor measurement units, real-time simulation of power systems, and electromagnetic transients.
