CV (last updated November 2022)

I am an assistant professor at the Cheriton School of Computer Science at University of Waterloo. Before joining Waterloo, I was a Presidential Post-Doctoral Fellow at the computer science department of Cornell University, working with Nate Foster, and Rachit Agarwal. I received my PhD in computer science from Princeton University, where I was advised by Jennifer Rexford. I got my B.Sc degree in Computer Engineering from department of Computer Engineering at Sharif University of Technology.

Research Interests: I am primarily interested in networked systems, with a focus on software defined networking (SDN) and programmable data planes. Recently, I have been focusing on how to exploit programmability to create networks that are verifiably robust across the stack, from the protocols themselves down to the switch and network interface card (NIC) hardware that processes packets.

Personal: My other half, Sepehr Assadi, does theoretical computer science at Rutgers University.

Prospective Students: I am looking for highly-motivated students to join my lab! If you are interested in working with me, send me an email and make sure to list my name as a potential advisor in your application.
