I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Lorraine Research Laboratory in Computer Science and its Applications (LORIA), Nancy, France, working with Thomas Sturm on SYMBIONT project.

My research is on computational problems dealing with polynomials, either algebraically or geometrically, sometimes called Symbolic Computations, and the applications on various areas. Currently, as a part of the Symbiont project, I apply those computational methods on chemical and biological reaction networks, e.g., for detecting toricity.

I studied mathematics at the Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, as an undergraduate student. My PhD studies was at the Research Institute for Symbolic Computations in Austria in 2015 under the supervision of Bruno Buchberger. During my PhD studies, I spent a term in UC Berkeley under a Marshall Plan scholarship, and another term in Centre de Recerca Matematica, Barcelona, with a DevMath scholarship. Since 2016 I was a postdoc at the University of Waterloo, Canada, after which I joined Loria.
