2004 - 2010 2010 - 2013 June-Aug 2015 June-Aug 2016 June-Aug 2017 Aug 2017 - May 2018 2013 - 2018


I graduated from PhD at Computer Science department of George Mason University. I worked under supervision of Jana Kosecka. My research interests are computer vision, deep learning, and robotics. I worked on semantic and 3D understanding of the scene and how to use it to navigate in indoor environments. In my research, I have worked on Learning based navigation in indoor environments, 3D pose estimation, Semantic Segmentation, Depth Estimation, Instance detection, and Image based localization. I have done internship in StreetSmart team of Google inc and in perception team of Zoox inc where I worked with great team of researchers and engineers solving real computer vision problems for autonomous driving. I spent the last year of my PhD at Google Brain Robotics team where I worked on learning to navigate in indoor environments. Prior to my PhD, I got my masters in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence in University of Tehran.
