Hello World!

I am currently a second-year Ph.D. Student in Computer Science at Arizona State University, where I do research on human-robot interaction under Prof. Siddharth Srivastava at AAIR Lab. My research is focused on enabling cobots to deliberatively communicate with humans in human-robot co-working environments to get jobs done safely and efficiently. Previously, I received my D.Eng. in Electrical Engineering from Lamar University in 2020 under Prof. Hassan Zargarzadeh and I conducted my research on task and motion planning of heterogenous multi-agent systems by introducing the notion of hunter-and-gatherer approach. I also received my M.Sc. in Computer Science from Lamar University in 2020 under the supervision of Prof. Peggy Isreal Doerschuk. My research was focused on making the experience replay technique in reinforcement learning more sample-efficient by maximizing the entropy of the sampled experiences in a batch. I received my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Qazvin Azad University in 2017. During my undergraduate studies, I was a research assistant at AMRL, where I led a multi-disciplinary team of students to develop tele-operative and autonomous rescue robots.
