I am currently pursuing my PhD in Computer Science and Mathematics from the University of Adelaide. My supervisors are prof. Michael Sheng, prof. Zbigniew Michalewicz and prof. Hong Shen. Prior to that, I received my master degree in IT engineering from K.N.Toosi University of Technology and bachelor degree in the same major from Shiraz University of Technology.
I have received a PhD degree from the University of Adelaide. My PhD research aims at creating a novel correlation management and search service for the Internet of Things. Major research interests include but not limited to Big Data, Graph Theory, Web of Things and Social Networks. For more information, please see my Google Scholar or LinkedIn pages.
I have served as the chair of the the 5th and the 6th International Symposium on Internet of Ubiquitous and Pervasive Things (IUPT 2015/2016).
