Hossein is currently an Assistant Professor in Software Engineering with the School of Computing, DCU.

He obtained his master’s degree in computer network security from University of Guilan, Iran, in 2015, and the Ph.D. degree in electronic and electrical engineering from National University of Ireland Galway, in 2018, examining the ‘‘Contributions to the Measurement of Depth in Consumer Imaging.’’

Experience as R&D Engineer with Xperi Corporation, mainly focused on consumer 3D reconstruction.

Lead Researcher on a collaborative project with Huawei Ltd., Ireland ‘‘Deep Real: Deep Learning for 3D Object placement in videos’’ nominated for Technology Award Ireland 2019.

Postdoctoral fellowship experience with ADAPT Centre, Trinity College Dublin, focused on advanced 3D modeling and augmented reality.

Current research interests:
  • Depth perception and 3D reconstruction
  • Visual Inertial Odometry
  • Event-based vision and navigation
  • Conditional generative models for synthetic data generation
