I am an AI research scientist with a passion for building agents that make humans’ lives easier & better. Currently I am pursuing this goal at Special Projects Group (SPG) in Apple, Inc.
During my doctoral (and post-doctoral) studies, I spent time at Stanford University (with Dr. Dorsa Sadigh), Honda Research Institute, Mercedes-Benz R&D North America, and Ford Motor Company R&D, where I was given the opportunity to build tools and solutions for robotics & autonomous systems.
Earlier in my life before college, I developed a passion for physics which led to winning a Silver Medal in the International Science Olympiads (Beijing, China). Later on, while studying at Sharif University of Technology, I raced as a professional racing driver (supported by GoPro and Sony) and won several national grands prix.
