Hi! I am a postdoctoral research fellow for computational science in MINDS research group headed by professor Herbert Jaeger, one of the pioneers of reservoir computing. As a part of an EU project (NeuRAM3), our group is working on spiking reservoir computing and its implementation on neuromorphic hardwares.
I received my PhD in biomedical engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Iran.
My research focus is on studying the neuronal mechanisms through which the brain achieves the cognitive and affective functions such as learning, decision- making, and emotional and cognitive information processing. I am also strongly interested in developing computational models to investigate the dynamical aspects of information processing in these cognitive functions. It is also fascinating to think how these brain-inspired information processing paradigms can motivate engineers to design new computing architectures.
In my opinion, in order to investigate the dynamical aspects of information processing in the brain, computational modelling, using both electrophysiological and behavioural data obtained by EEG, EMG, actigraphy and different neuroimaging modalities, is of crucial importance. Therefore, I try to keep myself updated on progresses in biomedical signal/image processing.
