Research Fellow in Statistics

Lund University


I am a research fellow in Statistical Machine Learning at Andrelab in the Center for Molecular Protein Science, Lund University, Lund, Sweden. I research probabilistic models to combine computational and experimental methods in protein modeling and prediction.

I was a tenure-track assistant professor of Statistics at the Department of Statistics in Shiraz University and Persian Gulf University between 2015 to 2019. I have a strong collaboration with Biologists, Medical Physicians, epidemiologists, Physicists, and Computer Scientists. My research interests are statistical machine learning, directional statistics, non-parametric modeling, and Bayesian statistics with application to bioinformatics and neuroimaging.

This website will take you to the recent research papers and reports, teaching material, some of the external activities, and blog posts. You are welcome to contact me if you are interested in connecting.
