I am interested in modeling the brain and understanding networks that process information. I currently work on a minimal model for economic embedding of physical networks inside space. We are using this model to understand the organization of white matter (myelinated axon fibers in mammalian brains). I also work on understanding how artificial neural networks find and process information in data. In particular, I want to understand how hierarchies of features appear in deep neural networks and how it can be genralized information processing in general. I earned my PhD in physics from Boston University under the supervision of Prof. Eugene Stanley in 2015 and did my Bachelor's at Sharif University of Technology, Iran. I have worked on linear response in financial networks and modeling formation of spatial networks of stochastic interacting agents. Before that, I used to work on black hole thermodynamics and particles in curved space.
