I'm Alireza Khalilian, a Ph.D. candidate in Software Engineering (SE) at the University of Isfahan (UI) under the supervision of Prof. Ahmad Baraani-Dastjerdi, and Dr. Bahman Zamani, as my advisor, started in 2013. I have received my MSc and BSc degrees, both in SE, in 2009 and 2003 respectively. I'm also a faculty member of computer engineering at the Islamic Azad University.

I'm skilled in programming with C-based languages and database design. I have worked as a developer, database designer, Oracle developer, and also as an IT consultant in the past 11 years. In addition, I have more than eight years of experience in teaching undergraduate computer engineering courses namely Compiler Construction, Programming Languages, Design and Implementation, Database Design, Information Security, Data Mining, and Data Structures and Algorithms. 

I have published more than 40 reviewed papers and articles in prestigious international conferences and journals. Moreover, I have written three books for undergraduate computer software engineering courses in PersianI'm the recipient of several honors and awards such as distinguished teacher, researcher, and the best paper award, all in 2014.
