Ph.D. in Mechano-Micro Engineering (Robotic surgery), Tokyo Institute of Technology
M.D., Tehran University of Medical sciences
Over the past several years, my research efforts have focused on medical image processing, artificial intelligence, and image guided medical procedures. I received my PhD in Mechano-Micro Engineering with focus on Robotic surgery from the Tokyo Institute of Technology after graduation from the medical school at the Tehran University of Medical Sciences. I have worked on MRI, CT scans, ultrasound, laparoscopic images, digital pathology, and hyperspectral images in human and animal subjects to detect different abnormal tissues. I currently work on multi-parametric imaging analysis and machine learning in personalized medicine mainly in brain tumors to define molecular tumor characteristics, tumor infiltration, subsequent location and time of recurrence, pseudo-progression, radiogenomics, and patients’ prognosis.
