About Me

I am a third-year Ph.D. student at the George Mason University under supervision of Dr. Thomas LaToza in Developer Experience Design Lab.


I received my bachelor's degree in Computer Science at Sharif University of Technology, Iran (2011). I continued my graduate studies at Sharif University of Technology under supervision of Dr. Alireza Zarei (2013) and at the University of Manitoba under supervision of Dr. Stephane Durocher (2016). I was a member of the Computational Geometry Lab. I studied at the University of Utah from August 2016 to May 2017.


My research is studying the barriers developers face when working with design decisions and examine possible solutions. I am exploring approaches to help developers document their decisions with minimum overhead and maximum benefits!


Our paper Active Documentation: Helping Developers Follow Design Decisions will appear in VL/HCC 2019.
