Mehdi Ghasemi

My name is Mehdi Ghasemi (in Persian "مهدی قاسمی"). I was born in Iran - Tehran in February 1980 and grew up there. I graduated from the Amirkabir University of Technology with a bachelor degree, August 2002, then finished my masters degree in Tarbiat Modares University, August 2004. After graduating from my master's program I was working for IPM as a researcher between April 2004 and March 2005, then more than three years for Omigaman as a web developer and analyst. In January 2006, I married my lovely wife, Bahareh Esfahbod.

I received my Ph.D. in the University of Saskatchewan, Department of Mathematics and Statistics under the supervision of Professor S. Kuhlmann (Universität Konstanz) and Professor M. Marshall in August 2012.

I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Konstanz, Germany, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and a MITACS fellow at the University of Saskatchewan from September 2012 to August 2017.

Currently, I am employed by the Government of Saskatchewan, Canada, as a data scientist and affiliated with the University of Saskatchewan as an adjunct professor.

Major Projects:

The followings are some of the major scientific libraries I have implemented for python.
