Family and Personal Interests


I am originally from Overland Park, Kansas. My dad, Dr. Hossein Saiedian, is a computer science professor at the University of Kansas. My mom, Dr. Zohreh Talebizadeh, is the Director of Autism Research at Children's Mercy Hospital and a professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

I have a younger brother, Seena, who is currently a student at UC Berkeley and is studying computer science and business.


I love to travel. One of my hobbies is creating travel videos when on trips with family and friends. I mostly use a GoPro Hero and a DJI drone.


In my free time, I enjoy playing and watching sports. I closely follow USC athletics, KU basketball, and the Kansas City Chiefs.
