Mohsen Ghaffari


I am a graduate student at the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department of MIT. I received my M.S. from the same department in 2013 and my B.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering (Communications) and Computer Science, both from Sharif University of Technology.

My research interests revolve around theoretical/algorithmic problems in networking and distributed computing.
