I was born in Rasht, the capital of province Guilan, in the north of Iran. My father is an emeritus teacher, and my mother, who is now a housekeeper used to teach the sewing in a charity association. I have two siblings who are married. One sister who is a PhD student in evolutionary biology at Uppsala University, Sweden and One brother who is an electrical engineer in power and works as a contractor of electrical services in Iran. I love teaching, doing research, programming, jugging, watching movies and playing music. I have been playing electronic keyboard since I was 12. I have a reputation in programming among my colleagues and friends at university. Now I am a PhD student at Kiel University, and I am working on flapping micro air vehicles.
