I am a PhD candidate in Finance at Alliance Manchester Business School. My research interests are empirical finance and macroeconomics as well as time series and financial econometrics. My supervisors are Stuart Hyde and Sungjun Cho and I'm currently teaching associate in economics and finance and teaching many courses, including mathematical economics, foundation of finance, econometrics, advanced mathematics, etc.
I received undergraduate degree in Materials Engineering from Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. I got my master degree in strategic management from Malek University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. Despite having no academic background in economics, because of achieving second rank in the nationwide university entrance exam for PhD degree, I convinced the admission committee to study PhD in Economics at Sharif University of Technology. After passing all of the courses and passing comprehensive exam in the first attempt, in 2016, I decided to re-apply and continue my PhD abroad. Having admission from different universities such as Rice, North Carolina, UCL, ESSEC, Tilburg, etc. I selected University of Manchester to study PhD in finance.
