Bio


I am a postdoc researcher in the department of Geophysics. I graduated from Stanford University with a Ph.D. degree in 2017, and an MSc degree in 2015 in Geophysics and Seismology. The focus of my research was on the time-dependent behavior of carbonate and clay-rich shales at different reservoir conditions and scales. As a postdoc, I am expanding my previous finding by studying the thermo-viscoplastic behavior of shale rocks.

I hold another MSc degree in Mining Engineering from the University of Tehran, where I conducted impression creep tests to characterize the creep behavior of soft rocks, such as salts mud-rocks and tuffs. I performed these experiments in different laboratories at the University of Tehran, Tokai University of Japan and Toyota National College of Technology.
