Short bio

I am a research engineer within the KerData team at INRIA Rennes, working on Damaris project under the supervision of Prof. Gabriel Antoniu. From 2013 to 2016, I was a CTO at iSun Mobile Services Co. managing a development team working on large scale electronic payment systems. Before that and as a Ph.D. student, I was working with Prof. Mohsen Sharifi in the Distributed Systems Laboratory (DSL) at IUST on power-aware scheduling of virtual machines.

My research and industrial experience is focused around development of distributed systems. My current work focuses on development of a middleware for I/O and data management, namely Damaris, targeting large-scale, MPI-based HPC simulations.

I am also broadly interested in other research areas such as virtualization technologies, operating systems and parallel programming technologies and models.
