I received my B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering, Communication Systems and the M.Sc. in Cryptography, both from Sharif University of Technology (SUT) , Tehran, Iran. I am currently a PhD candidate at the Audiovisual Communications Laboratory (LCAV) and I am delighted to have Prof. Martin Vetterli as my supervisor.

I am involved in the eFascimile project and my research activities mainly revolve around sampling and reconstruction of binary images.


Research Interests

  • Mathematical Signal Processing
  • Inverse problems and sparse recovery algorithms
  • Image Processing
