I am a PhD student at CU-Boulder. I am currently a research assistant working with Prof. Liz Bradley and Prof. Orit Peleg at the intersection of computer science, physics, and biology. Before coming to Boulder, I completed an MS in computer engineering at Azad University in my home country, Iran. I am broadly interested in using Agent-Based Modeling framework to study the underlying rules and find patterns that govern emergent behavior in complex biological systems. I have recently started to apply Topological Data Analysis to detect various spatiotemporal patterns and phases that emerge as a result of the collective food exchange in honeybees.
