Hi :)

I am Nastaran (نسترن), a 1st year Ph.D student at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, very fortunate to be advised by Manuel Gomez-Rodriguez. My research fits in the broad area of Human-Centered Machine Learning. More specifically, I work on designing machine learning algorithms which are able to operate under human assistance or in other words, operate under different automation levels. I am also interested in developing fair and explainable machine learning algorithms applicable in the medical and social domains.

I am from Iran and was born and raised in Mashhad where I also did my undergrads. My family roots can be found in Zabol.
