My name is Shayan Hosseini, natively written as شایان حسینی.
I will be joining Systopia lab at the University of British Columbia as a graduate student in January 2021. I completed my Bachelor’s in Computer Engineering at the ECE Department of the University of Tehran.
From 2015 to 2020, I was working at Cafebazaar, the most popular Android application store in Iran, with more than 35 million users. During these years, I was served as a Software Engineer, Product Manager, Technical Lead, and Software Engineering Manager. One of my main contributions was building a distributed object storage and a content delivery network. Moreover, I was one of the co-founders of Hezardastan Cloud Services, which is a subsidiary of Cafebazaar that provides public cloud services to other companies.
I have an extensive background in algorithms, combinatorics, and graph theory. When I was in high school, I won a silver medal in the Iranian National Olympiad in Informatics. I achieved 2nd place in Tehran ACM ICPC Regional Contest twice in 2016, 2017. Also, I got 56th place in ACM ICPC World Finals 2017.
My main research interest is distributed systems. In the summer of 2019, I was a Research Intern at Max Planck Institute for Informatic, working on the fault-tolerant routing problem under the supervision of Prof. Christoph Lenzen.
