My research lies at the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, healthcare, and computational neuroscience. I work on automatic analysis of human activities and behaviors from videos and connecting how humans perform actions to the brain by analyzing magnetic resonance images (MRIs). I explore explainable machine learning algorithms for understanding the underlying factors of neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases on the brain as well as their ramifications for everyday life.
My research lies in the intersection of machine learning, computer vision, neuroimaging, and computational neuroscience. Particularly, my research focuses on the investigation of different computational and statistical learning-based methods in processing both natural and biomedical images to extract semantics from the underlying visual content. Machine learning, statistics, signal and image processing, neuroscience, computer vision, and neuroimaging have conventionally evolved independently to tackle problems from different perspectives. Occasionally, these concepts neglected each other, while they can offer complementary viewpoints. In recent years, these fields have begun to intertwine, and it is increasingly becoming clear that we need to make use of multidisciplinary research to better process large-scale visual data. I consider my research interests and direction as located at the intersection of all the aforementioned fields.
