Master of Science: Cognitive Science

Middle East Technical University - Turkey, Ankara

  • Graduated with 4.0 GPA
  • Thesis: Recurrence Quantification Analysis of Group Eye-Tracking Data
2009-2014

Bachelor of Science: Mechanical Engineering

University of Tabriz - Iran, Tabriz

Research Interests

  • Dynamics of Brain-Body-Environment interaction (e.g., eye-hand coordination, group gaze coordination, etc.)
  • Human-Robot interaction
  • Eye-Tracking and visual attention
  • Machine learning and rigorous mathematical methods to model dynamical systems
  • Modeling human cognition using Symbolic (e.g., Act-R), Connectionist (e.g., Neural Networks, Nengo, etc.) and Dynamical Systems approaches
  • Collective behavior (e.g., collective search, collective decision-making)
  • Development and application of non-linear analysis methods for devising measures on social, psychological and cognitive phenomena (e.g., recurrence quantification analysis)
  • Quantifying emergent patterns in complex systems

This is an Anti-CV in the spirit of Nassim Taleb.

People don't walk around with anti-resumes telling you what they have not studied or experienced (it's the job of their competitors to do that), but it would be nice if they did.
