About me

I am a PhD research assistant in Computer Science at the Institute of Computer EngineeringTU Wien

My main research focus is on developing interpretable machine-learning algorithms.

I am currently collaborating with organizations such as Infineon, Distributed Robotics Lab (DRL) at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at MIT, OpenWorm, IST Austria (Henzinger Group) and  IMP (Zimmer Group)

and with professionals such as Radu Grosu, Daniela Rus, Thomas Henzinger, Alessio Lomuscio and Manuel Zimmer

I have been a visiting research scholar at the Distributed Robotics Lab (DRL) at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) at MIT, and at VAS Group at the Department of Computing, Imperial College London.

I completed my M.Sc. in Electronic Engineering at Politecnico di Milano.

Before that, I did a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering – Electronics at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad.
