I am an Applied Machine Learning Scientist at Microsoft. I completed my PhD in Computer Science at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in 2020. During my PhD, I was part of the Machine Learning and Algorithms groups under the supervision of Prof. Anne Condon and Prof. Mark Schmidt, and was also fortunate to collaborate closely with Prof. Erik Winfree and Dr. Frits Dannenberg from Caltech. My PhD research focused on predicting nucleic acid kinetics modeled as large Markov chains. I completed my masters in Computer Science at UBC in 2015, under the supervision Prof. Gail C. Murphy from UBC. My masters thesis was focused on developing recommendation techniques to improve programmers productivity in integrated development environments (IDEs). Before joining UBC, I completed my undergraduate degree in Software Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Iran in 2013.
