I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at University Hospital Cologne, affiliated with department of translational genomics at the university of Cologne. I consider myself as an interdisciplinary scientist working at the interface between Physics, Information Technology and Biology.
I received my PhD in physics in the field of Complex Systems in 2009 at the Sharif University in Tehran. Throughout my physics education and a short postdoc after that, my work was mainly focused on statistical and computational physics. My curiosity about “The Life” brought me toward biology research. In 2011, I was granted an EMBO Fellowship to study biological networks especially bacterial metabolic networks. From then on, I have been doing research in theoretical biology from different aspects. My research has benefited from machine learning approaches such as Deep Learning, statistical analysis, and mathematical modeling.
Currently I am focused on cancer genomics research.
