Meysam Madadi received his Bachelor degree in Software Engineering at BuAli Sina university of Hamedan and M.S. degree in Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence at Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) in 2007 and 2013, respectively. He has started his research activities by focusing on information retrieval and data mining since his bachelor project, continuing in master specifically on computer vision and image processing. He gave a special attention to pose recovery and human behavior analysis from his master thesis in title of Extraction of body soft-biometry from 3D videos using Kinect. He is interested in generating and developing new algorithms in these topics applying the knowledge in computer vision and retrieval systems besides machine learning, algorithms design in artificial intelligence, statistics, and linear algebra, among others.
