About me:

I am Masoud Fatemi. I have a M.Sc. in Computer Science - Artifical Intelligence from Isfahan University of Technology (IUT) with concentration on Machine Learning, Neural Networks, Natural Language Processing and Graphical Models. Also, I hold B.Sc. in Software Engineering from Shahrood Univerisity of Technology (SUT). Currently, I am a researcher and a member of Machine Learning group at School of Computing at University of Eastern Finland (UEF). Prior to this, I was a researcher at Machine Learning and Pattern Analysis Lab at IUT supervised by Dr. Mehran Safayani (google scholar), and also a member of Cognitive Science group at Imam Khomeini International University supervised by Prof. Abdoljavad Ahmadi (PhD in Psychology), where I used to designe, impelement and develop computational models in the field of Cognitive Science with concentration of Working Memomty.


I am broadly interested in Artificial Intelligence and interdisciplinary researches with the contribution of AI. Moreover, the main topics of my specialization are Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Deep Neural Network and Graphical Models. Currently, I am working under the supervision of Prof. Pasi Fränti and Prof. Mikko Laitinen (also here) on a "Natural Language Processing Tool for Online Twitter Data Analysis" (it is an ongoing project).


You can also find me Here (my privous homepage at IUT). In addition, if you are a new arival to Joensuu and UEF as well, do not hesitate to drop me an email and ask any questions that you might have or if you need any further information please let me know and feel free to contact me.


Last but not least, I do some volunteer activities at JoMoni -- a NGO with intention to promote multicultural diversity and to prevent immigrants from being discriminated against and isolated. If you are interested please either contact me or send an email to "volunteersjomoni@gmail.com".
