Hosein Masoomy

I am a researcher at Shahid Beheshti University (SBU) working with Dr. S.M.S. Movahed in Computational Cosmology Group (CCG) and Dr. G.R. Jafari in Center for Complex Networks and Social Data Science (CCNSD). I am interested in developing topological tools for Machine Learning (ML) uses. In particular, I utilize methods from Topological Data Analysis (TDA), an algebraic topology based tool, to extract hidden information of various kinds of datasets, e.g. time series, networks, point clouds, scalar fields and so on. My recent projects are focused on the application of Persistent Homology (PH) method on Complex Systems analysis, specifically, “Topology of Complex Networks”. In my researches, I develop new pipelines for analyzing datasets of various kind coming from simulations and real-world systems.
