I am a PhD candidate in Computer Science. I work with Prof. Crandall in the Vision Lab. My research interest is on applying Deep Learning on vision and audio problems. Specifically I am working with Graph-Convolutional and Convolutional Neural Networks for 3D Reconstruction and Hand and Object Pose Estimation.

I spent an amazing summer at Google as a Research Intern. I worked with Tao Dong on designing an Automatic Design Analyzer to detect Material Design components using app view hierarchy and deep convolutional neural networks. We applied this design analyzer to more than 10,000 android apps to study how Material Design is used among apps with different categories, average rating and number of installs.

I also spent 6 wonderful months at Facebook Reality Labs as a research intern during Winter, Spring and Summer 2019 as a research intern. I was working on high-fidelity 3D reconstruction.

I spent Fall 2019 in Google as a research intern. I was working on detecting the social interactions in an image with multiple people in it.

I am now a Software Engineer at Google Cloud Platform.

I also host Koron Podcast, a podcast in Persian about Persian music.
