A bit about me ...

I am a PhD student in Computer Science. My supervisor is Prof. Mauro Conti, and my research interests are mainly in the area of security and privacy. I received my BS.c. and MS.c. degrees in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering, from AmirKabir University of Technology (Poly technique Tehran), Iran, in 2007 and 2009, respectively. In 2014, I joined to SPRITZ Security & Privacy Research Group as a PhD student.

Currently, I am focusing on malware detection in Android OS with Machine Learning techniques. The general aim of my work is to significantly improve the state of the art in detecting mobile malicious applications by designing and applying innovative machine learning solutions.
