I joined Janelia in 2016 as a Research Specialist at Druckmann Lab. My research involves dynamical and statistical modeling of neuronal populations using Calcium Imaging and Electrophysiology.
I received my PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Maryland, College Park where I worked on theoretical and computational neuroscience using statistical signal processing, compressive sensing and big data. My Thesis titled: "Compressed Sensing Beyond the IID and Static Domains: Theory, Algorithms and Applications" won the best thesis award at the ECE department at University of Maryland. I was co-advised by Professors Min Wu and Behtash Babadi. Prior to joining UMD, he received his Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Tehran, Iran in 2012.
