Hi, I’m Fereshteh
I am majoring in Computer Science and currently working on my PhD at Georgia Institute of Technology, school of Interactive Computing. Prior my PhD, I got my Master of Science in Design Computing (with focus on Human - Robot Interaction) from Carnegie Mellon University.
Currently, I am research intern at Apple (ML & Sensing), with prior research and development experiences in companies like Tactual Labs Co., Autodesk (Applied Research Lab) , and Bentley Systems (GenerativeComponents Team).
Please feel free to contact me if you believe we have overlaps in our research interests.
