Hi! I'm Amir Masoud Sefidian
Machine Learning Engineer
Wwelcome to my website! I started programming as a C++ developer for AVR microcontrollers when I was 14. After four years of programming for the high school robotics team, I was motivated to pursue Computer Science. I completed my Master's degree in Computer Engineering in 2017 where I worked in the field of Machine Learning and Data Science especially focused on data preprocessing and missing values imputation techniques. I'm passionate about learning, developing software, and working on AI projects. Currently, I am a Machine Learning Engineer at ParticleB, focusing on Algorithmic Trading Systems and Recommendation Systems. I regularly share some of the content that I find useful throughout my learning journey on my Blog. Aside from computer science, I enjoy playing the piano and listening to music.
