Aliasghar Mortazi

My name is Aliasghar Mortazi and I am a Ph.D candidate in the Center for Research in Computer Vision (CRCV) at computer science department of University of Central Florida (UCF) since fall 2015. I am working under supervision of Dr. Bagci in the medical image computing and processing. More specifically, I am working on developing novel optimization algorithms for deep neural networks with their applications in cardiac image analysis.
