I graduated with a BSc and MSc in Pure Mathematics from Tehran University with a thesis on Graph Colouring Extension.

 Later, I obtained my PhD in Computer Science from Loughborough University. My PhD research was in the area of Interconnection Network Topologies.

 My research studies problems in Theoretical Computer Science and Mathematics. I am particularly interested in Graph Theory, Interconnection Network Topologies, and Computer Graphics.
