     Farid Gharehmohammadi is a third-year computer science Ph.D. student at University of Georgia (UGA), Athens, GA, USA. He received his master’s degree from Tarbiat Modares University (TMU) in Computer Engineering. After having 4 years’ experience working in the prestigious software companies, he joined UGA. Now at UGA, he has been standing high academic excellence with current GPA 4/4.

     His research spans mainly on machine learning, meta-learning, optimization, and computer vision. His paper on zero-shot learning application has been accepted to device-free human sensing ACM Workshop (DFHS 2019), titled as “promises of meta learning for device free human sensing: learn to sense”.

He has published more than 10 journal papers, book chapters and conference papers. Further, his three Springer book chapters on optimization and Meta-Learning are submitted and will be online by the end of this year.  He also serves as a reviewer at Elsevier and Springer journals.



He received a travel grant to attend "1st ACM Workshop on Device-Free Human Sensing" (A Buildsys 2019 Workshop), to present a research work,  awarded by  AiFi-AI, NY, USA Nov 2019

He won the 2019 POOIA Outstanding Achievement Award in recognition of sustained record of academic excellence.

He was selected as an Outstanding Reviewer in Journal of Visual Communication and Image Representation in 2017.

Invited Talks:

He gave a talk as a guest lecturer for evolutionary computation about application of evolutionary computation to advanced image processing on Sep. 12th, 2019.

He gave a talk as a guest lecturer for  Data Science 2 about application of evolutionary computation to advanced image processing on Oct. 1st, 2019.
