I completed my PhD in Biomedical Engineering at University of Toronto where I was a graduate fellow of Schwartz Reisman Institute for Technology and Society and a postgraduate affiliate of Vector Institute for Artificial Intelligence.
My PhD projects focused on two successive series of topics:
(1) finding areas of misalignment between automated vehicles and the preferences and capabilities of older adults living with and without dementia.
(2) proposing intelligent in-vehicle systems to help alleviate the identified misalignments.
See the Research page for the list of my publications and thesis.
I currently work as an AI consultant for Quebec National Institute of Public Health. Prior to my PhD, I completed a bachelor's in Electrical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran.
