I carried out my bachelor education in one of the best technical universities of Iran, Amirkabir University of Technology. In my bachelors, I put majority of my efforts in the theoretical computer science and programming-related courses, in which I was always interested. During my master studies I focused on Artificial Intelligence and speech and natural language processing related courses and researches. I took all of my elective courses in these fields and did a number of researches. The largest practical project was my M.Sc. thesis titled “Transliteration of English-Persian Names and Vice Versa Based on Statistical Methods”, for which we proposed new algorithm for aligning name pairs. I succeeded to publish two international papers and one paper in national conference based on my master thesis. After 4 years working experience as a J2EE developer and project manager in a big company in Tehran, I decided to continue my education and pursue PhD in my field of interest. I was granted a DAAD scholarship (German Academic Exchange Service) for further study and training in Germany. From October 2015, I have been a member of Enterprise Information System (EIS) group in Bonn University. My research interests are semantic web, text mining and analysis, information extraction & retrieval and Natural language processing.
