B.S Applied Mathematics, Sharif University of Technology, 2002

M.Sc Pure Mathematics , Iran University of Science ant Technology, 2005

M.Sc Software Engineering , East Carolina University, 2014

PhD Computer Science and Engineering, University of Notre Dame


My research primarily focused on Connectome which is between pattern recognition/deep learning and brain neuroscience, including lots of machine learning/deep learning stuff on Neuroscience and also recognition and prediction through the learning approaches mostly in the brain or generally in medical imaging. I have a limitless interest in neuro-cartography and brain wiring map reconstruction. 

I am working as a graduate research assistance in MICrONS group for IARPA. under the supervision of Dr.Walter Scheirer in the University of Notre Dame. Recently I published joint papers with Center for Brain Science at Harvard University about brain membrane sparse reconstruction, I proposed a fast and multi-functional learning free pipeline for sparse membrane reconstruction in three different modalities,and now I am working on Meta-Recognition problem in brain tissue segmentation/reconstruction which is mostly via the prediction of deep learning or machine learning approach. 

Before joining CVRL Lab (computer vision research lab) at the University of Notre Dame, I was working in Security lab at East Carolina University and also in University of Notre Dame. My security research was focused on secure computation in the cloud and semi-trusted environments. My last publication in the security area, published in GenoPri 2016 (international workshop on genome privacy), titled "Private Computation with Genomic Data for Genome-Wide Association and Linkage Studies", was about the secure computation of genomic tests and studies.
