About me

I am currently a postdoctoral researcher hosted by Prof. Alan Yuille.

In Fall 2009, I started my PhD at JHU in the electrical and computer engineering (ECE) department after receiving Hopkins dean fellowship where I was lucky to work with Prof. Hynek Hermansky at Center for Language and Speech Processing (CLSP) for a short period of time. Then, I started my PhD thesis journey in machine learning and computer vision under Prof. Donald Geman working on a sequential scene analysis approach called ‘‘Information Pursuit’’. Information Pursuit (IP) is an adaptive and online search strategy that we used to search the space of objects and their poses in a given scene for multi-category object recognition. During my PhD, I collaborated with Prof. Laurent Younes and Prof. Rene Vidal as well. I received my B.S. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) and the Sharif University of University (SUT) in 2005 and 2007, respectively. My first M.Sc. thesis was on low bit rate speech coding algorithms.

On my way to receive my doctorate degree, I also received two other M.Sc. degrees from JHU, one in ECE (2011) and another one in applied mathematics and statistics (2014).
