I am a MSc. student under the supervision of Mehran Ebrahimi and a member of Imaging Lab in the Modeling and Computational Science graduate program at Ontario Tech. I have a solid background and work experience in computer science and I've been writing programs for the past 20 years. My research interests mainly lie in the areas of computer vision, image processing, deep learning, and generative models. In particular, I have been working on structured deep learning for image enhancement, image inpainting, super-resolution, and image registration.
