About me :

I am a physicist interested in Data Science. I am a postgraduate fellow at Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA) in Trieste, Italy, working with Dr. Chris Mathys ‚Äčin the field of Time Series Forecasting, and EEG Data Analysis. I was also a visiting scientist at The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) in Trieste, Italy, working with Prof. Matteo Marsili on "the Application of the Critical Variable Selection in Keyword Extraction". I am very interested in interdisciplinary application of Machine Learning and Data Analysis particularly Social Network Analysis, and I am looking for a PhD position in those fields. My Master thesis was about analyzing epileptic EEG data to identify epileptic focus and predict epileptic seizure using ‚ÄčUnsupervised Machine Learning. In addition, I've been invited 3 times by Isfahan University of Technology (IUT) in Iran to give lectures in one 50-hour course on Java Programming (at the age of 18) and two 16-hour courses on Data Analysis with Python to graduate students. Also, I have teaching assistant experience in two graduate and one undergraduate courses. On the other hand, before going to Master's program, I was so active in industry and I got some awards. I started working as a Java developer at IT Center of IUT when I was a high school student. At the same time, I also worked on a project in my free time, namely Smart Bandwidth Manager (SBM). After its successful results, I was awarded the National Youth Kharazmi Award in the field of Computer Science by the minister of Science, Research and Technology and minister of Education. I was also honored as Outstanding Researcher and awarded Undergraduate Scholarship by the president of IUT. In addition, I worked on two other long projects at IUT and Isfahan Science & Technology Town (ISTT), for which some information is available in Long Projects section. Furthermore, I involved as a member of Local Organizing Committee in one international conference, International Iran Conferences on Quantum Information 2014 (IICQI) and one national conference, 12th Iran National Conference on Condensed Matter Physics.
