About Me

I am currently a Ph.D. student in the Department of Computer Science at University of Toronto, supervised by Animesh Garg and Andrea Tagliasacchi. My research interests include Deep Learning, Machine Learning, and Reinforcement learning, with applications in Computer Vision and Robotics.

I intend to widen my knowledge in these areas by learning more about their theoretical and mathematical side and by practical exploitation of these methods in real-life problems. My research goal is to introduce innovative approaches based on mathematical reasoning that solve practical problems in computer perception and motion.


Research Experience

Intern at Technical University of Munich (TUM)

Interdisziplinäres Forschungslabor (IFL), Computer Aided Medical Procedures (CAMP)

Summer 2020 - Spring 2021

Supervisor: Prof. Nassir Navab

My research is focused on segmentation of longitudinal chest CT scans of COVID-19 patients and prediction of clinical information.

Research Experience

Intern at University of British Columbia (UBC)

Robotics and Control Laboratory (RCL), Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE)

Summer 2019

Supervisor: Prof. Purang Abolmaesumi

I devised experiments in deep learning and reinforcement learning applications, with particular focus on ultrasound probe navigation using cardiac ultrasound images.

Research Experience

RA at Sharif University of Technology (SUT)

Image Processing Laboratory (IPL), Department of Computer Engineering (CE)

Fall 2019 - Spring 2021

Supervisor: Prof. Shohreh Kasaei

I investigated Adversarial Attacks and Defenses against Deep Neural Networks, specifically focusing on robustness against rotation and scale transformations.

Work Experience

Intern at Arsh Company

Arsh Company Sharif Innovation Center

Spring 2020

I worked on developing an age detection network using noisy labels in Pytorch framework.

I visualized and presented hundreds of processed and classified mining reports in an understandable and effective manner.
