About

sasol

I am a first-year PhD student at Rutgers University. My main areas of interest lie in both theoretical as well as practical aspects of machine learning and deep learning, and more specifically applying them to problems in NLP, Computer Vision, conversational agents, knowledge extraction/representation and data mining.  Before joining Rutgers, I obtained my B.Sc from Sharif University of Technology in 2016, defending my thesis under the supervision of Prof. Abolfazl Motahari.

I’m also a member of National Organization for  Development of Exceptional Talents (NODET) since 2004.

My other passions in life are travelling to other parts of the world and thinking about tricky math problems!! how nerdy is that!

I’d always be happy to get in touch with different people and exchange ideas. If you want to contact me, please look at my contact page.
