What I Studied

While I was in high school studying Mathematics & Physics, I won the first awards in Khwarizmi festivals, the most prominent young scientists annually. I studied Computer Science during my B.Sc. and continued my education in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI). I participated in several International and National Robocup competitions (2004 to 2008) and our team won first place in Iran Open 2007. I got a Ph.D. in Robotics and Machine Learning and I am currently working in Autonomous Driving Campus, BMW AG, as a Senior Machine Learning Engineer.
