Hi! This is Mohammad. I'm a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Bowdoin College. I got my PhD in computer science from Stony Brook University in 2013. I was fortunate to have been advised by Professor Luis E. Ortiz.

My research interests lie in the interdisciplinary areas that combine artificial intelligence with sociology (e.g, influence in social networks), economics (e.g., microfinance markets), and arts (e.g., computer-aided authentication of Jackson Pollock's drip paintings). I'm also interested in computational geometry and graph drawing.

Teaching is the joy of my life, and I'm driven by the ultimate goal of routinely excellence in teaching.

In my leisure time, I love playing tennis and soccer. You can find more about me here:

  • My Google Scholar page.

  • A video clip of my talk at the Provost's Graduate Student Lecture Series (from Stony Brook's Youtube channel).

  • A blog that I started to write very recently, connecting my research to the U.S. political scenarios.
