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.
