I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Biometric Security & Privacy group at the Idiap Research Institute, working under the supervision of Professor Sébastien Marcel. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Geneva in 2022, where I was advised by Professor Slava Voloshynovskiy in the Stochastic Information Processing (SIP) group. During my Ph.D., I spent six months as a Visiting Research Fellow at Harvard University, collaborating with Professor Flavio P. Calmon, and another six months as a Visiting Research Scholar at Imperial College London, working with Professor Deniz Gündüz.
Before starting my Ph.D., I earned an M.Sc. in Mathematics (Numerical Analysis) from Iran University of Science and Technology in 2017, and an M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering (Communications Systems) from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad in 2014, advised by Professor Touraj Nikazad and Professor Ghosheh Abed Hodtani, respectively.
My research interests encompass the application of mathematical, statistical, and information theories to machine learning, data privacy, and signal processing, with a particular emphasis on development of trustworthy AI technologies in biometric systems and healthcare problems.
