I'm currently a lecturer of Computer Science at the University of Georgia. I got my Ph.D. from the Computer Science Department at UGA. My dissertation was on activity recognition using wearable sensors. I'm broadly interested in Ubiquitous Computing Pervasive Systems. More specifically I am interested in collecting sensor data from smart phones and other modern mobile devices (e.g., fitness bands, tablets, music players and etc.) and mining this data for extracting useful knowledge. I am part of the DIPS research lab lead by Dr. Ramaswamy.
When I was a grad studnet, I was a teaching assistant for two years. I enjoyed teaching classes and labs as well as interacting with many students. I was also a research assistant on NPS cooperative agreement. I was a database programmer for the Southeast coast network.
I graduated from Qazvin Azad University in 2011 with a B.Sc. in computer engineering. I am originally from Tehran, Iran. I love exploring new places, trying out new activities and meeting people. I am a fan of board games and card games and enjoy playing them with friends.
