Vahid is a Lecturer at Computer Science Department at Boston University who teaches several courses including CAS CS 103: Introduction to Internet Technologies and Web Programming, CAS CS 111: Introduction to Computer Science I, CAS CS 132: Geometric Algorithm and CAS CS 235: Algebraic Algorithm. Prior to joining the CS department at BU at Spring 2017, Vahid was a Lecturer at Mechanical Engineering Department at The City College of The City University of New York with teaching emphasis in Fluid Mechanics and Miro/Nano Technology for 3 years.
Vahid’s research area of interest is computer stereo vision with a focus on digital image correlation (DIC) and particle image velocimetry (PIV) having tremendous applications in experimental mechanics and robotics. Vahid is endeavoring to integrate his research experiences in mechanical engineering, numerical methods, programming and computer science to develop new solution methods for real-world problems. Vahid holds a B.Sc. (IUST, 2007), an M.Sc. (UT, 2010), an M.Phil. (CCNY, 2013) and a Ph.D. (CCNY, 2017) in the field of Mechanical Engineering.
