I was born and grew up in Rasht, a city in the north of Iran. I completed a Bachelor's and a Master's of Computer Science at Shahid Beheshti University (formerly The National University of Iran) and University of Tehran in 2008 and 2011, respectively. During my Master, I worked as a tutor and a lecturer for a few courses. ...I started my PhD in 2011 at ANU where I also took on different responsibilities. As the social officer, I worked with ANU Persian Society and the Postgraduate and Research Students' Association (PARSA). I was also an organising committee member of the ACT Girl Geek Club and represented the Higher Degree Research students in the Student Representative Council of the Research School of Computer Science in 2013.
My research interests are *Graph Theory*, *Combinatorial Algorithms* and *Bioinformatics*. I work on *Graph Generation* during my PhD under the supervision of Prof. Brendan McKay. My Master's and Bachelor's thesis were respectively entitled: "Routing Permutations on Graphs via Matchings" and "Haplotype Block Partitioning and TagSNP Selection under the Perfect Phylogeny Model".
