I am an AI scientist (Ph.D. candidate of AI @ Carnegie Mellon University) and a computer engineer (B.S. University of Tehran). My research is focused on theoretical and empirical aspects of multimodal machine learning. I am also interested in fundamental unimodal research topics including facial and body analysis, audio source localization and separation, as well as language and dependency modeling. My ECE knowledge spans robotics, embedded systems, microprocessors, computer graphics,  game design, network administration, and software engineering.
