About me

I am a computer science Ph.D. student at the University of Washington working with Linda Shapiro and Ranjay Krishna. My interests revolve around computer vision and representation learning, particularly in the context of medical and biomedical applications.

Previously, I earned my Bachelor's degree from the Sharif University of Technology in Iran. Summer 2021, I received an International Undergraduate Excellence Award from the Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures & Augmented Reality (CAMPAR) at Technical University of Munich for a research internship in the field of Medical AI.
