Assistant Professor
in
Electrical and Computer Engineering Department,
Faculty of Engineering, University of Tehran

Member
of
Control and Intelligent Processing Center of Excellence -
Database Research Group


Following some 20 years of professional career in French software house companies as R&D manager, senior consultant, etc., I joined the academic community of the University of Tehran in September 2000. Some of my current fields of interests are:

  • Database Systems (implementation, reverse engineering, normalization, and optimization)
  • Designing CASE Tools (software generation, integration, and modernization)
  • Legacy Systems (migration to modern environments)
  • XML Databases (implementation, data mining, and information retrieval)
In 1979, I achieved my BS degree in Electronics Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran. In 1983, I achieved my MS in Information Systems from Pierre and Marie Curie University in Paris and then in 1987, I achieved my PhD in Distributed Database Systems from Pierre and Marie Curie University.
