About me

I am a computer science Ph.D. candidate at the LANTAM taskforce of the imec-DistriNet research group at KU Leuven in Belgium.

My research activities are supervised by

Research interests (more here):

  • Storage security with applied cryptography
  • Middleware and software architecture: adaptation, reflection and data security
  • Cloud computing infrastructure: capacity planning, container orchestration frameworks

I received a Master’s degree in distributed systems and computer networks from the University of Antwerp (Belgium, 2014), and a Bachelor’s degrees in computer hardware engineering from the University of Isfahan (Iran, 2010).

Previously, I was a research associate at the imec-DistriNet research group, KU Leuven. Before joining imec-DistriNet, I worked on cloud computing subjects in Alcatel-Lucent (now Nokia) as part of my Master’s thesis research. Furthermore, I worked for a number of years in the software industry as a software engineer in the Brussels region.

What am I doing now?

  • Writing my PhD thesis
  • Writing a paper in the scope of security of microservices in collaboration with some colleagues in our lab
  • Supervising 3 smart master’s thesis students
  • (on hold atm due to my heavy workload) Working on an extension to ScrambleDB to support more functionalities without extra leakage
  • 100 other things
