My name is Alireza Shafaei (in Persian: علیرضا شفائی) and you are in my personal homepage. I'm currently doing a Masters program in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia. My field of research is Computer Vision/Machine Learning and I have the privilege of working under supervision of James J. Little.
Previously I did my Bachelor of Computer Engineering/Software Engineering at the Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic).
I'm a passionate computer scientist and I enjoy studying Algorithms, Mathematics and Philosophy. I practice playing the piano during my leisure time, and I love teaching!

Feel free to go over my academic research page, and if you're a computer enthusiast, my past projects could be interesting to you.
