My research involves understanding the immunological role of lymphatic system in shaping immune responses. More specifically, we try to understand how the lymphatic endothelial cells interact with lymphocytes and other immune cells on the molecular level through the expression of cytokines and surface molecules. The goal is to elucidate the mechanisms involved in the education and differentiation of T lymphocytes in the context of pathological conditions, including cancer.
As an undergraduate, I did a double majoring in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering at Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran. Later in my studies, I developed an interest in biological sciences and decided to do a Ph.D. in Molecular Engineering, specializing in cancer and immune-engineering. My hobbies include running, biking, playing soccer, reading and watching movies.
