About

I am a Ph.D. student in Dr.Irani's HCI lab. I have completed my M.Sc. program at Amirkabir University of Technology in Iran. For my M.Sc. thesis, I explored several machine learning and signal processing techniques with the data collected with smartphone sensors, in order to detect people's safe driving behaviors. For my Ph.D. thesis, one of the major goals is the identification of people's unhealthy habits. To achieve this, I use wearable devices and apply machine learning algorithms classification techniques.
