I joined the University of Leeds as a Lecturer in the September 2018. I obtained an MSc in Bioelectric Engineering from Tehran University and a PhD in Information Science from the University of Tokyo, supported by a Japanese Monbusho scholarship. In 2008, I was awarded a post-doctoral fellowship by Japan Society of Promotion of Science and shortly after, I moved to the University of Pennsylvania, USA, and worked on tumor image analysis till 2011. Subsequently, I served as an Assistant Professor at Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran. In 2014, I was awarded an IIF Marie-Curie Fellowship for statistical modeling of morphology and function of the heart in the University of Sheffield, where I was promoted to a Lecturer in the department of EEE prior to joining Leeds.
Positions - I have funded positions for one PDRA and three international PhD students. If you have got the stamina to work within a world leading image computational group, and have the track record to innovate useful tools or contribute to the state-of-the-art, please contact me.
My research interest includes probabilistic machine and deep learning, variational Bayesian inference, graphical models, and medical image computing. I have a particular expertise in population imaging studies, generative models for shape and motion atlases, and computational tumor image analysis.
Software and Tools - I have developed multiple tools that are available for free academic use. If you use them, please cite the corresponding references. I would be very thankful!
