Tara Boroushaki

Research Assistant


My research focuses on fusing vision with radio frequency (RF) sensing through artificial intelligence. I design algorithms and models and build systems that leverage such fusion to enable capabilities that were not feasible before in applications spanning augmented reality, virtual reality, robotics, smart homes, and smart manufacturing. 

My research was named as one of the 103 ways MIT is making a better world, and I have received Microsoft PhD fellowship (2022). My research has also been featured in public media including the Wall Street Journal, BBC, and World Economic Forum.

I completed my undergraduate studies at Sharif University of Technology before I joined MIT in 2019.
