I am a senior research scientist at Google Brain in Toronto. I am interested in developing simple and efficient machine learning algorithms that are broadly applicable across a range of problem domains including natural language processing and computer vision
    I joined the brain team in Mountain View in January, 2016 and moved to Toronto in January, 2018. I completed my PhD in computer science at the University of Toronto in December, 2015. My advisor was Prof. David Fleet, and I was supported by a Google PhD fellowship in machine learning. My PhD thesis focused on scalable similarity search for web-scale data collections. I am from Iran, where I finished my undergraduate studies at Sharif University of Technology.
