I am a Research Associate at the Institute of Astronomy, University of Cambridge, where I have been since 2020. I obtained my Ph.D. in Astrophysics from the Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM), Iran, in 2016. Prior to joining the University of Cambridge, I held three postdoctoral fellowships: at IPM [2016-2018], the Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) [2018-2020], and the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford [2020-2022].

My primary research interest lies in studying the observational diagnostics of the formation and evolution of bars and bulges in disc galaxies. I also possess a keen interest in medical/bio image analysis, developing astronomical pipelines and data analysis tools, robotic telescopes, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and dealing with complex and extensive datasets. I have been fortunate enough to be involved in several astronomical instrumentation projects, such as AF2+WYFFOS, INOLA, WEAVE, and 4MOST, as well as medical data analysis projects, such as IMAXT, mainly as the lead senior pipeline/software developer.
