Research interests

I have masters in biomedical engineering from Tehran University. My master thesis was on applying Granger Causality method on EEG signals. I am currently a fourth year PhD student in psychology and I am interested in studying the neural correlates of goal-directed temporally extended sequential behavior. I use a combination of ERP signal analysis, reinforcement learning, neural network modeling to look at this type of behavior at a more abstract level.
