I’m a Ph.D. Candidate in Aeronautics and Astronautics engineering at the University of Washington. My research interests includes Vision-based Navigation, Data-Driven Control, Stochastic planning and Multi-agent Systems. I’m also interested in applying the developed techniques to analyze distributed systems operating in cooperative/non-cooperative environments.

I received the B.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, in 2016, the M.Sc. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington, in 2018, both in the area of control theory. I’m a recipient of the Amazon Fellowship Award, from the UW+Amazon Science Hub, and the Ruth C. Hertzberg Endowed Fellowship with UW, in 2018.


Oct 31, 2023 🌟 My recent work was selected as one of the six finalist for the Best Graduate Student Paper Competition, AIAA Guidance Navigation and Control, SciTech 2024.!
🗣 I will present this work, titled "Data-Guided Regulator for Adaptive Nonlinear Control" at SciTech 2024. Access the implemented code for a 6-DOF power-descent guidence problem, on this page.
