Smiley face

I am Third Year Ph.D Student at department of Computer Science , University Of Georgia. I have started my PhD studies in august 2015 . I am working with Prof. Hamid Arabnia and Prof. Juan B. Gutierrez. My research focuses on Machine Learning and Deep Learning, DNA Computing , Optimization , Data Privacy , Probabilistic Model .

  • Ph.D. in Computer Science, Department of Computer Science, The University of Georgia, 2015 - present

  • M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics ( Operations Research ), The University of Arak, Iran, 2005 - 2007

The List of NSF or NIH projects I was involved with:

    ALICE

    ALICE stands for Adaptive Learning for Interdisciplinary Collaborative Environments. ALICE is an information system that designs a learning environment for every student based on her/his interaction with the system. ALICE is under active development.

  • Malaria Host-Pathogen Interaction Center (MaHPIC)

  • The MaHPIC combines Emory investigators’ interdisciplinary experience in malaria research, metabolomics, lipidomics and human and non-human primate immunology and pathogenesis with UGA’s expertise in pathogen bioinformatics and large database systems, and Georgia Tech’s experience in mathematical modeling and systems biology. The CDC has provided support in proteomics and malaria research, including nonhuman primate and vector/mosquito infections. NIAID Grant HHSN272201200031C

  • Acute Models of Malaria to Study Experimental Resilience (THoR’s HAMMER)

  • A research partnership within DARPA’s THoR (Technologies for Host Resilience) program, the HAMMER project uniquely focuses on malaria and its effects on human and non-human primate hosts. This project will explore the molecular mechanisms of resilience, susceptibility and resistance of non-human primate hosts when challenged with a malaria infection. DARPA contract #W911NF-16-C-0008
