Immigrant members of the MIT community
I grew up in Tehran, Iran. After completing my undergraduate studies at Sharif University of Technology, I came to Rice University as a graduate student. Afterwards, I moved to Göttingen, Germany as a Human Frontier Science Program postdoctoral fellow. I joined the MIT Department of Physics in January 2015. My lab is interested in developing tools for discovering how spatiotemporal patterns arise in active biological materials.
