School of Biological Sciences, Georgia Tech
I studied Biotechnology (integrated BSc/MSc/PhD program) at the University of Tehran, Iran, and did my master's project on stem cell research at Royan Institute at Hossein Baharvand's lab.
I came to the US in 2007 to do my PhD in systems neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania. I studied cerebellar mechanisms underlying motor adaptation in Javier Medina's lab and collaborated with Sam Wang's lab at Princeton University.
In 2014, I joined Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory as a postdoc to study parietal cortex circuits underlying cognitive behavior in Anne Churchland's lab.
In 2019, I joined the Allen institute for Brain Science to investigate the neural circuits of visually guided behavior using a team science approach.
In January 2023, I will start my appointment as an assistant professor at Georgia Tech to investigate the circuits and computations that underlie predictive processing in the brain.
In 2018, I joined Santa Clara University to pursue a bachelor's degree in Neuroscience.
In 2019, I transferred to Georgia Institute of Technology where I graduated with a double major in Neuroscience and Mathematics in December 2022.
In January 2022, I joined the Attention and Working Memory Lab at GT as an Undergraduate Research Assistant. I worked on the fMRI study investigating the role of the locus-coeruleus in modulating functional connectivity of brain networks.
In the same year, I worked on a neurodevelopment project for my capstone design under the guidance of Dr. Alberto Stolfi. I researched the effects of deleting VAMP genes in Ciona robusta larvae using CRISPR/Cas9 technology.
