Since August 2012, I am a member of Center for Research in Computer Vision (CRCV) at University of Central Florida where I pursue my Ph.D. in Computer Science. I am advised by Prof. Mubarak Shah and my research is on intersection of Computer Vision and Machine Learning. More specifically, my research interests include Deep Learning, Video Content Analysis, Video Semantic Indexing and Retrieval, Complex Video Event Recognition and Non-convex Optimization.

I received my B.Sc. from Tehran Polytechnic (AmirKabir University of Technology) in 2009 and M.Sc. from Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in 2010, both in Electrical Engineering. At IIT, I was a member of Medical Imaging Research Center (MIRC) where I worked under supervision of Dr. Jovan G. Brankov on Generalization Evaluation of Machine Learning Numerical Observers in Image Quality Assessment. From February 2011 to June 2012, I worked as a visiting researcher at Multimedia Signal Processing Research Laboratory at EE Dept. of Tehran Polytechnic where I was delighted to collaborate with Dr. Hamid Sheikhzadeh.
