I am a PhD student in the Faculty of Informatics at the Università della Svizzera italiana (aka. University of Lugano), in Lugano, Switzerland. I completed my MSc degree in the Department of Computer Engineering and Information Techonologies at Tehran Polytechnic, Tehran, Iran.
My PhD Topic is on combining relevance criteria for mobile information retrieval. My supervisor is Prof. Fabio Crestani.
My research interests include Information Retrieval (IR), particularly Mobile IR; Context-aware Recommendation; Natural Language Processing for IR.
I have recently been selected as one of the SIGIR Student Liaisons, happily representing the students of Europe and Africa in our community. Please do contact me regarding any issues relevant to students.
We released the data collection that we crawled and used for our participations in the TREC Contextual Suggestion track. You can find more details on the data collection and how to gain access to it here.
