This is the professional homepage of Arash Abadpour.
I finished my Ph.D. at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of Manitoba, under the supervision of Professor Attahiru S. Alfa. I currently work in the Imaging Group at Epson Edge, Epson Canada Limited, as a Researcher. I have previously worked as a Researcher for TRLabs, Winnipeg. I can be reached at the phone number +1 647 567 3487 or through the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am enthusiastic about things that survive. It could be a living organism which evolves and adapts to the changing environment or an algorithm that is robust against noise and the unknown. I have a Ph,D. in electrical engineering, and I have indeed worked as an electrical engineer, but the best thing that I am capable of doing, and love doing, is designing algorithms which very distantly resemble human cognition, especially in the field of vision and visual perception. I like reading books and watching films and writing code and interacting with human beings. Work needs to be more than merely a survival mechanism. I have managed to make it be that way.
I have been a blogger since October 2004, when I started blogging in English under the pen name Kamangir (Archer). I started a Persian blog with the same name in May 2007. Later in 2012, English Kamangir was deactivated. Based on different independent statistics, collected in 2012, Persian Kamangir is among the twenty most–read Persian blogs on the net. Posts from Persian Kamangir are widely shared on different social networks and are referenced by other Persian bloggers as well as Persian media sources. Several Persian–language news and media websites have reproduced or actively reproduce content from Persian Kamangir in their websites. More info on what I do on the net on kamangir.net.
