I studied Biotechnology (integrated BSc/MSc/PhD program) at the University of Tehran, Iran, and did my master's project on stem cell research at Royan Institute at Hossein Baharvand's lab.
I came to the US in 2007 to do my PhD in systems neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania. I studied cerebellar mechanisms underlying motor adaptation in Javier Medina's lab and collaborated with Sam Wang's lab at Princeton University.
In 2014, I joined Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory as a postdoc to study parietal cortex circuits underlying cognitive behavior in Anne Churchland's lab.
In 2019, I joined the Allen institute for Brain Science to investigate the neural circuits of visually guided behavior using a team science approach.
In January 2023, I started my appointment as an assistant professor at Georgia Tech to investigate the circuits and computations that underlie predictive processing in the brain.
I graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2022 with a double major in Neuroscience and Mathematics. As an Undergraduate Research Assistant, I was part of an fMRI study investigating the role of the locus-coeruleus in modulating functional connectivity of brain networks. For my capstone design, I worked on a neurodevelopment project using CRISPR/Cas9 technology. I am passionate about studying neurological disorders and am strongly motivated to help better people's lives through my research skills and experience.
I graduated from Georgia Institute of Technology in 2009 with a BS in ECE. I have held various engineering positions in both government and industry prior to deciding to return to graduate school in 2021 for an MS ECE. My interests are geared towards being able to understand and replicate human neurophysiological architecture and functionality in the effort to treat various medical conditions, augment human capabilities, as well as developing biologically inspired artificial general intelligence systems.
I am currently working on my bachelor's degree in Biology, with a minor in Neuroscience, at Georgia Institute of Technology. I am interested in the neural applications of genetics, which starts with a good understanding of the brain and the interactions between its structures. I plan to earn my PhD and complete post-doctoral research before becoming a professor.
I am currently a second-year pursuing a bachelor's degree in Biomedical Engineering and minor in Chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology. I hope to study the neural code of the brain and how utilizing it can help people with neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental diseases. Ultimately, I want to pursue a PhD so that I can become a full time researcher either in the industry or in academia.
I am currently a second year pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience and a minor in Spanish at Georgia Tech. After I finish my undergraduate studies, I plan to attend medical school so that I can use my knowledge of Neuroscience and fluency in Spanish to improve the human condition by practicing medicine in underrepresented Spanish speaking countries.
I am currently a Mechanical Engineering student concentrating in design at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I am passionate about robotic design related to improving and assisting research labs. I intend to pursue a BS/MS and eventually work in the industry.
