About Me

I am a PhD candidate in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Rutgers University. I am part of the INSPIRE lab, working under the supervision of Prof. Waheed Bajwa. My research interests lie in the areas of statistical signal processing and machine learning, with a focus on multidimensional data processing. I received my BS in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Iran in 2013 and my MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Rutgers University in 2016.

News

I am the coorganizer of the SIP seminars in the ECE department in Fall 2018. Details about talks and joining the mailing list are available here.
