Profile :: Education :: Publications :: Courses :: Schedule :: CV :: Contact

I started  my academic career at the University of Guilan in 2006 after spending a short postdoc position at the school of computational engineering and science at McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada.  I enjoy my work and educating students.


Research Interests:

My research interests mainly focuses on developing efficient interior point algorithms for solving linear and nonlinear optimization problems.  Recently, I am also  involved on modeling  and solving some location problems.  Besides my main research interest, I am also interested in nulmerical linear algebra and scientific computing.
