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 have published more than 44 peer-reviewed papers in international conferences and journals. I have also written three books for undergraduate computer software engineering courses in Persian. I'm the recipient of several honors and awards such as distinguished teacher, researcher, and the best paper award, all in 2014. I'm skilled in programming with C-based languages as well as in database design. I have worked as a developer, database designer, Oracle developer, and also as an IT consultant in the past 15 years. In addition, I have more than 10 years of experience in teaching undergraduate computer engineering courses, including Compiler Construction, Programming Languages, Design and Implementation, Database Design, and Information Security.
