I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Ryerson ECE Department, advised by Matthew Kyan and Alexandra (Ali) Mazalek. In 2009, I received a MSc in Biomedical Engineering in ECE department from K.N.Toosi University of Technology. I am broadly interested in both theoretical and applied matematical problems. On the theoretical side, I am concentrating on machine learning, optimization, and high-dimensional statistical inference. On the applied side, I have been fortunate to work with a number of excellent collaborators in fields such as human computer interaction, pathology, and genomics/proteomics. My research interests span the analysis, reconstruction, high-dimensional visualization, and interpretation of disease and drug-target gene/protein networks based on: * Machine Learning * Convex and Non-Convex Optimization * Compressed Sensing * Signal Processing * Network Science * Tangible User Interface I specialize in developing, analyzing, and visualizing model selection procedures that address challenges arising from high dimensionality and various forms of constraints in modern data analysis.
