Wayne State University

I am a Ph.D. student in Industrial and System Engineering and a Master student in Computer Science at Wayne State University. I started my study for PhD degree on Fall 2013. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics in Iran graduating from the best mathematical departments of the country, and ranked 3th among all students. My research focuses mainly on parallel approximation algorithms for various combinatorial optimization problems arising in distributed computing systems. I am working under the direction of Dr. Daniel Grosu for my Master’s thesis in Computer Science. My thesis research resulted so far in a conference paper in which I proposed a practical and efficient parallel approximation algorithm for the problem of scheduling jobs on parallel identical machines. This is the first such parallel approximation algorithm proposed in the literature. Also I am working on numerical methods for solving nonconvex optimization problems.
