Hi! This is Mohammad#, a PhD student in Information Security under the supervision of Andrei Sabelfeld and Daniel Hedin at Chalmers in Sweden, started in September 2019. Prior to that, I lived at Tehran Polytechnic (AUT) for 8 years (BSc in Software Engineering, MSc in Information Security, and PhD candidate in Software Engineering), supervised by Mehran S. Fallah. Since then, I have been pursuing my passion for:

  • Language-Based Security
  • Formal Methods for Information Security
  • Information-Flow Security
  • Programming Languages
