I did my BSc at Sharif University of Technology. I had the privilage to work closely with Vahid Karimipour, Reza Rahimitabar and Abdollah Langari.
I did my masters degree in Calgary, in Canada. It was my first time traveling to a foreign country on my own and so many adventures. I worked with Christoph Simon on macroscopic quantum effects. I also did a project with Barry Sanders on Quantum Simulations.
I did my PhD under Michele Mosca at the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo. It was one of the most educating periods of my life, scientifically and otherwise. I also got to work closely with experimentalists and even spent sometime doing experiments myself.
After my PhD, I moved across the atlantic ocean to Germany and started my first (sort of) real job as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Erlangen and Max Planck Institute for the science of light in Erlangen. I worked with Florian Marquardth and started doing research in the field of Optomechanics.
