I did my bachelor studies in molecular biology in Iran. For my master studies, I enrolled in the Erasmus Mundus Master program in Evolutionary Biology in which I worked on projects in evolutionary developmental biology in ascidians, human populations genetics, and sex chromosome evolution in ratite birds.
I joined the labs of Aida Andrés and Sergi Castellano in September 2013 as a graduate student. In my project, I follow a population genomics approach as I am interested in disentangling the evolutionary mechanisms that led to local adaptation in humans and non-human primates.
