BSc, MSc, PhD

Project Researcher, New Zealand Brain Research Institute, Christchurch

I received my Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Shiraz University, Shiraz, Iran, in 2010. In 2013, I received a Master's degree in control and automation engineering from Universiti Putra Malaysia, Selangor, Malaysia. My thesis was entitled: "Adaptive Complex Neuro-Fuzzy Inference System for Nonlinear Modeling and Time Series Prediction".

I received my PhD degree from Electrical & Computer Engineering at University of Canterbury on 'Bayesian approaches to detection and prediction of lapses of responsiveness'.  My research is concentrated on detection and prediction of lapses of responsiveness, using a Bayesian approach. The latter is a probabilistic method which can represent human brain interactions in term of probabilities and handle uncertainties.
