I joined the Isfahan University of Technology in 2012 as Assistant Professor. I established my research on data science and data integration for demanding application areas, including the veracity of location data, health informatics, and bioinformatics. I was with the Department of Systems and Computer Engineering and the Institute of Data Science at Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada as a visiting researcher in 2015. I was promoted to Associate Professor (with Tenure) in 2018. I have also served as head of the IT center of Isfahan University of Technology (2015-2018) and the IT department of Isfahan University of Medical Sciences (2018-2020). In both departments, I spearheaded digital transformation and established teams for emerging data-oriented process improvements. 

As a data scientist and artificial intelligence professional, my career has been focused on finding solutions based on cutting-edge deep learning models, data-centric artificial intelligence, and software engineering principles. The projects have been in healthcare, biomedical, bioinformatics, energy, and manufacturing domains. I have experience working in both start-up environments and large organizations. I have also mentored two teams in establishing successful start-ups specializing in data integration and data mining for the energy and healthcare domains.

I have published over 40 scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals and conferences. I have been a PI on over 10 provincial and national grants. I am the director of the Data and Knowledge Research Lab (DKR). I mentored 30+ PhD and MSc students and more than 50 undergraduates. Several of them joined prestigious research or industrial institutions both nationally and abroad.
