                                I was born in August 1982 in Tehran, Iran.


I just finished my PhD in Ocean and Naval Architectural Engineering in April 2009 in Memorial University, St. John’s, NL, Canada.


I was in Canada for about 3.5 years; travelled to Texas, New York and New Hampshire in the States and inside Canada to Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Halifax and Quebec City.


Also I participated in the Let’s Talk Science program to visit schools and talk about science for the kids, so I travelled to the small towns of Woody Point, Deer Lake, Grand Falls and Gander inside the Newfoundland Island.


I started my Undergrad studies in Mechanical Engineering/ Marine Engineering in Sharif University in Tehran when I was 18 and finished it in four years. I acquired lots of knowledge and had lots of fun. Either for scientific or just recreational purposes I travelled with my classmates twice to Bandar-Abbas, Isfahan, Ahvaz, Abadan, Ghazvin, Semnan and participated in many other one or two day visits. I have seen the sugar industry, iron industry, oil industry, … even have even been on-board of a huge hovercraft vessel during these visits! I have almost no notes of those all, but everything is so close in my memory, it all passed so fast!


The universities I attended had obviously a central role in all I experienced during the past 10 years; therefore, you see the logos of Sharif and Memorial on the top.


Now the plan is to progress beyond what I have experienced until now!
