I was born at Isfahan, Iran in 1970. After completion of my high school diploma in 1988, I studied Materials Engineering at Isfahan University of Technology (IUT). In 1992, I arrived in Sharif University of Technology in Tehran for the MSc degree in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering followed by the PhD degree in Materials Engineering. I visited the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology during my PhD thesis in 1999. Following my PhD course in 1999, I worked as a research associate at Imperial College London in an EPSRC research project from 2001 to 2004. I then went back to IUT and started my work as an assistant professor in the department of Materials Engineering and as an associate professor since 2008. My fields of interest include nanomaterials (bulk nanocrystalline and nanoparticles) and numerical simulation of manufacturing processes.
