I completed my bachelor's (2010) and master's (2012) degrees at Isfahan University of Technology. In 2017, I graduated from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, with a PhD in mathematics under supervision of Prof. Hinke M. Osinga and A/Prof. Vivien Kirk. The main focus of my research was on investigating underlying mechanisms of transient responses of slow-fast systems to brief perturbations. In particular, I developed an algorithm for computing the stable manifold of a saddle slow manifold (transient stable manifold) to prove its key role in determining the number of oscillations in such responses. In March 2018, I moved to McGill University, Canada, where I held a Post Doctoral Research Fellow position in the lab of A/Prof. Anmar Khadra. My main research was focused on exploiting ordinary differential equations (ODEs) in particular geometric singular perturbation theory (GSPT), to explain and predict some of the peculiar behaviours in cerebellar stellate cells. In December 2019, I joined the research group of Dr. Andrea Rocco at University of Surrey as a Research Associate to design and develop mathematical models of gene expression of stem cells during development.
