For family reasons, Pejman left NISLab to relocate to St. Paul, Minnesota, where he will be a Software Engineer for Carbon Black Inc., a leading company in next-generation endpoint security. He was a very hard-working and pleasant member of NISLab. Very capable and smart. We just wished he were to stay to continue his research, but life goes on. Good luck, Pejman!
