Roozbeh Sadeghian, Ph.D. Associate Professor and Program Lead of Analytics

Upon graduating with a degree in electrical engineering (control field), Dr. Sadeghian worked for seven years in several industries as a Senior Industrial Automation Engineer. Later, he pursued his PhD in signal processing and speech recognition.

During PhD. Dr. Sadeghian worked on speech features as the baseline to diagnose the speech delay in children and Alzheimer’s disease in elderly people. To address the issues properly, he conducted deep learning networks and has published several papers that proved his hypothesis of using speech recognition in diagnosing health disorders in early stages.

He is currently the lead instructor of Machine learning II (deep learning) course whereas he can share his enthusiasm and expertise with young researchers. He has published several papers on incorporating deep learning techniques to address health disorders.

Teaching and Research Interests:

Dr. Sadeghian’s teaching interests include graduate courses such as Machine learning, Pattern recognition, Analytics, Big Data, and Signal Processing.

His research is founded at the nexus of science and engineering of clinical diagnosis and early notice and assessments of healthcare disorders, analytics and data science. Specific topics include:

– Machine learning applications, Analytics, Big data and data science

– Modeling, detection and tracking of paralinguistic information, such as health state, and traits from human speech signal

– Acoustic and Language Modeling and analyzing the speech signals with applications to recognition and clinical assessments of speech

– Developing new and improving the current speech features to improve ASR accuracy.
