Research Activities

I was graduated with a master in Electrical Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology in Tehran. In 2013 I joined the Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM), School of Cognitive Sciences (SCS) as a researcher. I did some research on building computational models of the visual cortex to achieve different levels of invariance in visual object/face recognition. I started my PhD at SCS in 2015. I am interested in the neural mechanisms of visual object recognition. I am currently working on how the information processing takes place in the brain for visual (especially face) perception.
