Behrooz Razeghi   


I was born in August 1989 in Mashhad, Iran. Currently, I am a PhD student in the Department of Computer Sciences at UNIGE, and a member of the Stochastic Information Processing (SIP) group. Before joining SIP group, I received the M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (Communications) from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, Iran, in 2014, and the M.Sc. degree in Mathematics (Numerical Analysis) from Iran University of Science and Technology, Iran, in 2017. I am very lucky to be advised by Professor Slava Voloshynovskiy.

Research Interests

My research interests are the applications of mathematical and statistical theories to signal processing, machine learning, data privacy, communications and networking problems.
