I am a PhD student at School of Engineering at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and a Research Assistant at Biometric Group in Idiap Research Institute under supervision of Prof. Marcel and Prof. Alahi. Previously I got my masters in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, under supervision of Dr. Arash Amini.
Before starting my PhD I was lead research engineer at MCI.
My main research interest are Mitigating Bias and Boosting Fairness mainly in Computer Vision. Specifically my approach at the moment is to address the problem using Balanced Synthetic Datasets by controlling the Visual Generative Models (e.g., StyleGANs, Latent Diffusion, … ), which tries to tackle the transfer of bias in datasets to the model’s outcome.
