Developmental Psychology
Research Interests: 

Ali graduated with his master’s degree in the field of Biomedical Engineering from the University of Tehran, Tehran, Iran in August 2016. He has carried out a number of research projects in biological signal processing, pattern recognition, and also cognitive science. In addition to developing an in-house functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) system, he has applied fNIRS in research with infants for my master’s thesis. Ali is currently a Ph.D. student in the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Research Group in the Department of Psychological Sciences at UC Merced. The department is an interdisciplinary center for research, where laboratory groups tackle a wide range of cognition-relevant problems. Ali's thesis project is a comparison of fNIRS and electroencephalography (EEG) source localization, with a focus on their relative spatial accuracy. For this, he and Dr. Bortfeld are collaborating with Dr. Ramesh Balasubramaniam from UC Merced’s Department of Cognitive and Information Sciences.
