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.

Concurrently, I am a PhD candidate in the Department Computer Science at the University of Central Florida (UCF) working under the supervision of Dr. Joseph LaViola. My research is focused on deep recurrent neural networks (RNN) for gesture recognition and synthesis (yes, I’m working full-time and doing a PhD at the same time! 🙂 ).
Prior to that, 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.
