I am a statistician and lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW. My academic journey includes a Ph.D. in Statistics from Shiraz University in 2011 and a Master of Data Science from the University of Melbourne in 2023. My research interests are centered around time series analysis, functional data analysis, and data science. Since 2022, I have been working as a lecturer at UNSW.
