I am currently a postdoctoral associate at Computer Science and A.I. Lab (CSAIL) at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) working on neural basis of human visual perception under supervision of Prof. Aude Oliva and Dr. Dimitrios PantazisBefore I was a postdoctoral researcher in The Visuomotor Neuroscience Lab, Center for Vision Research at York University where I was working on computational modeling of Trans-saccadic perception and visual feature integration under supervision of Prof. Douglas Crawford.  In my PhD research I was working in the field of statistical machine learning methods in The Multimedia Signal Processing Lab in Electrical Engineering Department of Tehran Polytechnic University under supervision of Prof. Hamid Sheikhzadeh and Prof. Ali M. Reza. My research interest includes:
  • B


    , Human brain Imaging (fMRI/MEG/EEG) and 

    Computational Neuroscience:
    Neural mechanism of perception and memory, Modeling visual perception in ventral stream through fMRI/MEG fusion, Modeling human brain vision mechanism, Modeling visual feature integration, Modeling Visual Perception in Ventral Stream, Computational Sensorimotor Control, and Working Memory.
  • Machine Learning, Data Analysis and Signal Processing: Theoretical Machine Learning and Statistics, Bayesian Methods for Machine Learning, Non-parametric Bayesian methods, Approximate Inference Algorithms, Graphical Models, Sparse Bayesian Learning, Classification and Regression, Convolutional Neural Networks and Deep Learning.
  • Machine Vision and Image Processing: Object Recognition, Face Recognition, Facial Expression Recognition, Motion Tracking.
