I am a postdoc in the Systems and Networking Security group at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, working closely with Cristiano Giuffrida and Herbert Bos. I am currently looking at practical side-channel attacks against interfaces exposed by commodity hardware and software. I am also interested in practical exploitation and mitigation of wide-spread hardware vulnerabilities such as Rowhammer. I teach the group’s Secure Software and co-teach Kernel Programming.
I received a PhD (2012-2015) from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam for my work on fast and scalable startup of virtual machines under the supervision of Thilo Kielmann and Henri Bal. My PhD thesis was nominated for the Roger Needham award at EuroSys in 2016. I attained two prestigious internship positions with Microsoft Research Cambridge during my PhD. Working with Paolo Costa, Sergey Legtchenko and Ant Rowstron, I prototyped new networking and storage architectures at the scale of a rack. In 2011, I received an MSc from ETH Zurich working mostly on the Barrelfish OS under the supervision of Timothy Roscoe. I also hold a BSc degree from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran.
