I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Biometric Security & Privacy group at the Idiap Research Institute. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Geneva in 2022, where Professor Slava Voloshynovskiy advised me in the Stochastic Information Processing (SIP) group. During my time at the University of Geneva, I also 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 the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad in 2014, where I was advised by Professor Touraj Nikazad and Professor Ghosheh Abed Hodtani, respectively.
My research interests include the applications of mathematical and statistical theories to signal processing, machine learning, data privacy, communications, and networking problems.
