About Me


 I am an assistant professor at the Department of Computer Engineering, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad (FUM), Iran. I am also a leading member of Web Technology Lab (WTLab).


 I got my B.Sc and M.Sc at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad and Amirkabir University of Technology, Iran, in 2000, and 2007, respectively. I received my Ph.D. in 2014 on the Quality Assessment of Linked Open Data from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. During my Ph.D. program, I have also collaborated with Laboratory for Systems, Software, and Semantics (LS3) at Ryerson University.



 Before joining FUM as a faculty member, I worked in administration for more than ten years. First, I was a System Analyst at the Labor and Social Affairs Organization (2000-2005). Then, I joined the General Governor's Office as the Director of the Software Development Department (2005-2011). Finally, I returned to academia and commenced my work as a faculty member at FUM in 2015.
