About Me

I am a third-year Ph.D. student from the Information and Decision Sciences (IDS) department at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Before joining the UIC, I got my Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics from the School of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Tehran. Below are my main research interests.

(i) Solving sequential decision-making problems by combining techniques from approximate dynamic programming, randomized and high-dimensional sampling, and optimization.

(ii) Developing algorithms for online retailing and warehousing problems using data-driven optimization, robust optimization, and inverse reinforcement learning methods.


October 22nd, 2019: Professor Selva Nadarajah presents our joint work at INFORMS Annual Meeting 2019. The title of our paper is self guided approximate linear programs and it is scheduled under the learning algorithms (theory and applications) track. See schedule.

August 8th, 2019: I give a talk in the 25th ACM SIGKDD conference on knowledge discovery and data mining. See schedule.
