High School
From: Allameh Helli
From: Sharif University, Tehran, Iran (1986)
Major: Electrical Engineering + Physics
From: Sharif University, Tehran, Iran (1996)
Major: Physics
Thesis: Theoretical and experimental investigation of electrospinning dynamics.



1- Theoretical and experimental studies on quantum biology and specifically the effect of weak magnetic fields on biomaterials. I have focused on the weak magnetic field effects on cancer genesis and cancer treatment.
2- Modeling and simulation of biological processes at cellular and molecular level. Specifically cancer initiation, tumor growth and tumor–immune system interaction.
3- Theoretical and experimental studies of Systems Biology of Cancer.
