My Image

I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Arizona. My research interests are Neural Networks, Deep Learning and applications of Computer Vision. I am working with Prof. Kobus Barnard on applications of Computer Vision and Neural Networks in Medical and Plant sciences. More specifically, I am applying Deep Learning and Image Processing methods to detect and localize tumors in large and high resolution slides (WSI) of human breast tissues. Also, I am working on applying Computer Vision and Machine Learning methods to stitch and preprocess high resolution images of crop fields as well as detecting and localizing crop heads and classifying their different characteristics.

I previously received my B.Sc. in Computer Science from Shahid Beheshti University where I acted as the secretory of Scientific Association of Computer Science Students for one year. During my undergraduate program, I worked with Dr. Ali Katanforoush on a few small projects.
