I am currently a Postdoctoral fellow in Prof. David Weitz's lab at Harvard University. The primary focus of my research is flow through porous media. Using confocal microscopy, we are able to measure the dynamics of the fluid flow at pore scale and quantify the flow in the bulk of the medium. I received my Ph.D in Physics from Wesleyan University in May 2013. I studied experimental fluid mechanics Prof. Greg Voth's lab. The subject of my dissertation was the dynamics of anisotropic particles in turbulence.

I attended a summer training program in Fiber suspension flow modelling, at KTH (Stockholm, Sweden)/ VTT (Jyväskylä, Finland). In this course I had the opportunity to learn some of the methods of measurements in fiber flows under supervision of international experts in the field. I also attended the Boulder School for Condensed Matter and Material Physics, Boulder, CO in July 2011.

Prior to my graduate studies at Wesleyan, I lectured Physics at Azad University for two years. Teaching has been a priceless experience and one of the major motivations for me to pursue my graduate studies. I received my M.Sc. in Solid State Physics from University of Tabriz, Iran in 2005. I received my B.Sc from Iran University of Science and Technology in 2002 majoring in Applied Physics.
