I am a PhD student at CU-Boulder. I am currently a research assistant working with Prof. Liz Bradley and Prof. Orit Peleg at the intersection of computer science, physics, and biology. Before coming to Boulder, I completed an MS in computer engineering at Azad University in my home country, Iran. I am broadly interested in using Agent-Based Modeling framework to study the underlying rules and find patterns that govern emergent behavior in complex biological systems. We collect our own data using lab experiments and analyze them using an integration of techniques such as computer vision, machine learning, agent-based modeling, and topological data analysis, etc. to detect various spatiotemporal patterns and phases that emerge as a result of the collective food exchange in honeybees.
