Dr Vahid Seydi

Research Fellow in Data Science

Vahid Seydi is a Research Fellow in the School of Ocean Science at Bangor University in Data Science and Machine Learning. Prior to Bangor, he was an Assistant Professor at the Department of AI at Azad University South Tehran Branch.

As a member of the iMarDIS project team, He works on a data infrastructure to bring together diverse ocean science datasets and make them available to various research and industrial partners within the offshore renewable and ocean sciences community. Visualising this data so that it would be informative and well exploited in the fields of education, research, and industry, along with investigating the interaction of AI and machine learning with the collected marine data are two parts of the project's intentions (iMardDIS-Analyser is an example of visualizing data).

He received a B.Sc.(2005) in software engineering, Ms Sc. (2007) and PhD(2014) in AI, from the Department of Computer Science at Azad University, Science and Research Branch, Tehran Iran. He has been awarded his current research fellowship(2020), a merit-based scholarship for attending the school of AI, Rome, Italy(2019), Also, He has achieved a full scholarship Award from Azad University(2010-2014), KNTU ISLAB Research Fellowship (2007-2010). He secured the first rank among the graduates in the year 2004-2005.
