Brief biography

I am a Mitacs Elevate postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering, University of Toronto and Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital working with Dr. Tom Chau focusing on brain signal analysis and tool development for kids with severe movement disabilities. I am also working on margin bounds and Rademacher complexity to better understand linear classifiers' behaviour against different datasets with Dr. Antonina Kolokolova.

I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science, Memorial University of Newfoundland, supervised by Dr. Samet, Dr. Banzhaf and Dr. Usefi. I have developed a new noise-robust and scalable feature selection method called perturbation-based feature selection inspired by a historical monument in Isfahan called Monar Jonban (Shaking Minarets), and implemented using perturbation theory and system of equations.

I received my Master degree from the Department of Computer Engineering, Shahid Bahonar University of Kerman, supervised by Dr. Eftekhari and Dr. Mohammadi, where I proposed a set of improvements on existing fuzzy-rough set based feature selection methods.

I received my Bachelor degree from the Department of Computer Engineering, Shahid Ashrafi Esfahani University, supervised by Dr. Kaedi, where I have designed and implemented a pipeline to train a self-organizing map neural network to recognize Persian handwritten digits.
