I'm a PhD candidate at Mila lab, Université de Montréal. I work under the supervision of Ioannis Mitliagkas (UdeM) and Nicolas Le Roux (Google Brain Montreal). Prior to my PhD, I received my Masters in Computer Science from Université de Montréal and worked for two years at Mila on several open-source software for deep learning such as Theano, Orion and Cortex. I also did my bachelors in Computer Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic).
My research interests are in the intersection of machine learning, large scale optimization and game theory. I am the winner of Borealis AI graduate fellowship 2020.
I co-organized the Bridging Game Theory and Deep Learning workshop at NeurIPS 2019. I also co-organize Mila's Deep Learning Theory Group and MTL MLOpt. MTL MLOpt is a bi-weekly meeting in Montreal that includes researchers from the University of Montréal, McGill, Google Brain, Samsung SAIT AI Lab (SAIL) Montreal, Facebook AI Research Montréal (FAIR) and Microsoft Research Montréal.
