Currently, I am a research fellow at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, University of Melbourne, Parkville, Australia. Prior to that, I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Automatic Control Department, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. In 2014, I received my PhD degree in Automatic Control from KTH Royal Institute of Technology and before that I received my BSc and MSc degrees in Electrical Engineering (Automatic Control), respectively, in 2008 and 2010 from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. My current research interests include understanding the effects of information limitations and asymmetries in control and estimation of large-scale networked systems, such as water irrigation networks and intelligent transportation systems.
