Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications

I was born in Saveh, Iran. I received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the Islamic Azad University, Saveh Branch, Saveh, Iran, in 2004 and 2013, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Technology Sydney, Sydney, Australia, in 2021, all in Electrical Engineering. I am a Research Fellow with the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia, since March 2020.

I have more than 10 years of experience in different parts of the electrical industry. I have proven skills in handling power systems projects as well as a strong background in the field of automation and control. I also possess valuable experience in relation to power systems in transmission, distribution, and load (industrial and residential) levels.

My research interests include power systems, power electronics, control theory, optimization, and artificial intelligence, particularly their application into Smart/Micro Grids.
