I was born in Tehran, Iran in 1983. I got my bachelor’s degree (2006) and master’s degree (2010) in Biomedical Engineering from department of Biomedical Engineering, Azad University, Science and research branch of Tehran. I did my master on “Performance Improvement and Evaluation of the Multi Electrode Cochlear Implant System based on Signal Synthesis Model” under supervision of Dr. H. Sadjedi (Assistant Professor of department of Electronics, Shahed University) and Dr. M. Farhadi (the head of department of Ear, Throat, Nose and Head and Neck Surgery, Tehran University of Medical Sciences).
Since September 2013, I am working as a PhD student in the group of Prof. Norbert Dillier; and studying PhD at ETH University of Zurich.


Research interests: cochlear implant, auditory signal processing, objective measurements and modelling of electrically stimulated auditory neurons
