About me

I'm Navid, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Calirofnia, Irvine working with Prof. Sam Malek. My research interests lie primarily in Software Engineering and Accessible Computing. I design and develop automated tools by leveraging program analysis and machine learning techniques to detect and fix accessibility issues in mobile apps.
