Hello There!

I started university at Electrical Engineering department of Sharif University at Tehran until I obtained my M.S. degree. What was important for me those days was to find out a unify picture of the underlying principles of the world. So I decided to study theoretical physics where such a view is meant to be developed.

  • Education

  • PhD

    IPM, Tehran, Iran- 2016-present

    I was very lucky that I could be student of Hassan Firouzjahi and do research in theoretical cosmology. First year was mostly dedicated to study works (QFT, GR, ...). After that I started research work more about which can be found below.

  • Masters Degree

    Sharif University, Tehran, Iran- 2013-2015

    I continued to study electrical engineering at Masters level. I worked on optical devices that can be used instead of electronic devices - I was going to take revenge :) - In the meanwhile I found out that my feeling for physics is getting revived. That lead to a major change ...

  • Bachelors Degree

    Sharif University, Tehran, Iran- 2009-2013

    I started university to obtain a computer engineering degree. Then I changed my major to electrical engineering. In summary, electrical engineering is about how to harness electromagnetic interaction. I hated designing electronic circuits and electric motors but I loved to study how electricity and magnetism work together to make an electromagnetic wave, the most important discovery of Maxwell.
