I am a PhD student at Center for Language and Speech Processing working with Prof. Raman Arora. My research interests lie in the intersection of machine learning and optimization. I am interested in computational aspects of unsupervised learning and theory of deep learning. I received my M.Sc. and B.Sc. in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Engineering from Sharif University of Technology and Amirkabir University of Technology respectively.
