I received the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (Communications) from Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran, in 2000 with the highest honors, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Bioelectrical Engineering in 2002 and 2008, respectively, from Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic), Tehran, Iran. In 2007 I was with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Queen's University, Kingston, ON, Canada, as a Visiting Researcher, and in 2011 with the University of Iowa, IA, United States, as a Postdoctoral Research Scholar. I am now an Associate Professor in Biomedical Engineering Department and Medical Image & Signal Processing Research Center, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences, Isfahan, Iran. I am also currently with Duke University Eye Center from 2013.
I am a Senior Member of IEEE (Signal Processing Society, Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, Circuits and Systems Society, Computer Society), and Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Medical Signals and Sensors. My main research interests are medical image analysis and modeling, statistical (multidimensional) signal processing, sparse transforms, and image restoration, which more than 110 papers and book chapters have been published by me as an author or co-author in these areas.
