Computer Science Ph. D. student Mojtaba Sedigh Fazli has been selected to receive Georgia Informatics Institutes Graduate Fellowships in Deep Learning and Visualization for the 2018 - 2019 academic year. This is a highly distinguished fellowship, and the department is very proud of his accomplishment!

Mojtaba is a Ph.D. candidate who works under supervision of Dr. Shannon Quinn in the Computer Science Department. His research entails the development of computational pipelines to examine multiscale spatiotemporal dynamics of biological systems under different conditions. His dissertation focuses on how these spatiotemporal changes can be quantified and modeled to predict how the system under observation will respond to certain stimuli (drugs, pathogens, toxins). Using this fellowship, he will develop new deep computational architectures to incorporate novel unsupervised object detection and probabilistic object tracking.
