Marjan Sirjani is a Professor at School of Computer Science at Reykjavik University. Her main research interest is applying formal methods in Software Engineering. She works on modeling and verification of concurrent and distributed systems. Marjan and her research group are pioneers in building model checking tools, compositional verification theories, and state-space reduction techniques for actor-based models. She has been working on analyzing actors since 2001 using the modeling language Rebeca. Rebeca and its extensions are designed to bridge the gap between model-based software development and formal analysis, and has been used for analyzing different network and system applications. She has also worked on coordination languages and is the co-author of the paper proposing Constraint Automata as the compositional formal semantics for the coordination language Reo.

She is a member of expert panel on Engineering and Physical Sciences at RANNÍS, The National Icelandic Centre for Research, and a co-founder of Icelandic Center for Research on Software Engineering at Reykjavik University, and the founder of Formal Methods Laboratory at University of Tehran.

Marjan has been the PC member and PC chair of several international conferences including Coordination, FM, FMICS, ICFEM, FSEN, and guest editor for special issues of the journals Science of Computer Programming and Fundamenta Informaticae. Before joining academia as a full-time faculty she has been the managing director of Behin System Company for more than ten years, developing software and providing system services. Marjan served as the head of the Software Engineering Department of School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Tehran from 2005 to 2008 prior to joining the School of Computer Science at Reykjavik.

She established FSEN conference series in 2005 with the help of the Steering Committee and support of School of Computer Science at IPM.
FSEN has been supported by IFIP WG2.2 and ACM SigSoft.
