I am a Ph.D. student in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Currently, I am a research assistant and a member of the ISUE Lab working under the supervision of Dr. Joseph LaViola. My areas of interest are human-computer interaction (HCI) and computer vision. My research is focused on visualization and sketch-based user interfaces.

Prior to joining UCF, I was an M.Sc. 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.
