About me

I am an adjunct professor in the department of medicine at the University of British Columbia and the associate director of Praxis Artificial Intelligence at the Praxis Spinal Cord Institute. I am particularly interested in interdisciplinary approaches in neuroscience studies using analytical methods (biostatistics, epidemiology, and machine learning).

As part of my PhD, I visited International Center for Theoretical Physics, Italy, in 2003, and Dalhousie University in 2006-2007. In July 2008, after completing my PhD at Tehran University of Medical Sciences, I became a postdoctoral fellow at Dalhousie University, and later finished second postdoctoral training at the University of British Columbia.

Over the last ten years, I have conducted epidemiological, medical & health services research in collaboration with physicians and researchers, which has resulted in 2 books and more than 85 publications in refereed biostatistics, epidemiology, machine learning, and medical journals.

I lead a team of biostatistician, epidemiologist and machine learning experts. A major focus of our team is developing and deploying advanced computational models based on biostatistics, epidemiology, and machine learning to improve the quality of life of people with spinal cord injury and Alzheimer’s disease.
