Hi! I am Mehdi. I am a third-year Machine Learning Ph.D. student advised by Dr. Eva L. Dyer. My main areas of interest are 🤖 Deep Learning and 🧠 Computational Neuroscience.

My research focuses on the development of new methods for representation learning. I am particularly interested in expanding the use of these tools to novel domains where the structure of the data can be complex and obscured. Through the development of new approaches for analyzing and interpreting complex modalities, I aim to make an impact in our understanding of the brain, and biological intelligence, and to contribute new tools that facilitate new scientific discoveries. I am currently working on developing methods for learning representations of neural activity and behavior, with the goal of improving our understanding of the brain.

I love coding and learning new things. I am an enthusiast for dynamic and interactive visualizations that can provide insights into complex data and enable new ways of thinking. I received a MS in Engineering from CentraleSupélec, France in 2019 and a MS in Computer Science from Georgia Tech in 2020.
