Brief biography

I earned my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Electrical Engineering at Amirkabir University of Technology (Tehran Polytechnic) in 2009 and 2011, respectively. In January 2013, I joined the Center for Robust Speech Systems (CRSS) at the University of Texas at Dallas as a research assistant, where I have been pursuing a Ph.D. degree under the supervision of Dr. John H.L. Hansen.
