Currently, I am a postdoc in the CSE department at UC San Diego, where I work with Ravi Ramamoorthi. I finished my Ph.D. in the ECE department at UC Santa Barbara under the supervision of Pradeep Sen. Prior to my Ph.D. studies, I got my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran.

Research Interests

I am interested in a diverse set of computer graphics and vision applications with an emphasis on both image synthesis and computational image processing. In image synthesis, I am interested in developing algorithms that speed up the rendering process and, in computational image processing, I like to develop algorithms that mimic the way an artist would edit an image or video in an automated way or with a small amount of user interaction.
