I am a Senior Research Scientist (tenured faculty member) at the Interdisciplinary Centre for ICT Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT), University of Luxembourg. Prior to coming to Luxembourg, I held a Staff Scientist position at Simula Research Laboratory, and before that a postdoctoral fellowship at University College London, supported by an NSERC grant from the Government of Canada.

I received my PhD (2008) and MSc (2003) in Computer Science from the University of Toronto, and my BSc in Software Engineering from Sharif University of Technology (2000).

Research Interests

My research interests are focused on software engineering, and more specifically on requirements engineering, model-based development, and legal and regulatory compliance. One of the main objectives I pursue in my research is to foster closer ties between academia and industry. The large majority of my projects in the past ten years have been conducted in close collaboration with industry partners. My research activities span several sectors, including government, finance, legal services, telecommunications, maritime, energy, railways, and automotive.

I am always on the lookout for highly motivated PhD candidates. If you are interested in pursuing a PhD in software engineering and passionate about collaborating with industry, feel free to contact me. Please note that having a Masters degree is a requirement. I can consider only applicants who have already finished or are about to finish their Masters program.
