Personal profile

Biography

I was born and raised in Iran, where my fascination with living organisms led me to pursue a path in life sciences. During high school and pre-university, I focused on life sciences and earned my diploma in this field.

For my undergraduate study (2006-2011), I enrolled at Isfahan University of Technology (IUT), specializing in agronomy and plant breeding. It was during this time that I developed a strong interest in molecular biology and genetics, driving me to pursue postgraduate degrees in plant breeding.

During my master’s degree (2012-2015), my research centered on the assessment of phenological, phytochemical, and oil characteristics, as well as self-pollinated seed production in artichoke (Cynara scolymus) under various irrigation regimes. This allowed me to gain knowledge in areas such as plant phenology, physiology, biochemical compounds like phenols, enzyme activities, and chromatography techniques, including gas chromatography (GC) and high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).

In 2019, I was awarded a scholarship to pursue my Ph.D. at The University of Western Australia. My doctoral research, spanned from 2020 to 2023, centered on the integration of transcriptomics, proteomics, and genomics to investigate complex traits such as drought tolerance in bread wheat. Throughout my Ph.D. journey, I gained experience in various genetic and bioinformatic methodologies, became proficient in advanced laboratory equipment usage, and developed expertise in experimental design and data analysis.
