I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at SUNY Albany. My research interests include data mining and machine learning with a focus on human-centered applications, such as recommender systems, educational systems, and online social networks. Check my research for more specific topics.

I received my PhD and Master's in Intelligent Systems Program from the University of Pittsburgh, my Master's in Computer Engineering from University of Tehran, and my Bachelor's in Computer Science/Engineering from Sharif University of Technology. More details can be found in my CV.

I'm looking for motivated students to work with me. If you are interested, take a look at opportunities -- funded open positions.
