I am currently a member of the autonomous vehicles group at NVIDIA Corporation working on the NVIDIA DRIVE platform. Our team is focused on methods and algorithms for localization of self-driving cars to high-definition (HD) maps. Our work is available as a part of NVIDIA DRIVE software.

Prior to joining NVIDIA, I was a student in the Department Computer Science at the University of Central Florida (UCF) working under the supervision of Dr. Joseph LaViola. My research areas of interest are human-computer interaction (HCI) and computer vision. My research was focused on visualization, sketch-based user interfaces as well as gesture and action recognition.

Prior to joining UCF, I was a student and graduate teaching assistant in the Department of Computer Science at Brock University working under the supervision of Dr. Brian Ross. My master’s research was focused on real-time and automatic object classification and tracking using genetic programming (GP) and NVIDIA CUDA.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering as the top student from Sheikhbahaee University, Esfahan, Iran in 2011.
