Saeed Varasteh Yazdi

I am currently a PhD student at Universite Grenoble Alpes. I am a member of AMA team in the LIG laboratory. My PhD thesis is supervised by Prof. Ahlame Douzal and Prof. Eric Gaussier and it is mainly about classification and clustering of temporal data. I am interested in machine learning and data mining tasks. I also love programming and I have more than 10 years experience in web development.
