Academic theseswhich have been supervised or consulted


Since 2002, more than 15 undergraduate and postgraduate theses has been supervised by me



Personal skills and competencies

My native language is Persian but I am able to read, write and speak English fluently and Arabic in an intermediate level. I get used to live and work with other people in many multicultural environments, in positions where communication is important and situations where teamwork is essential for instance. I have been the liaison of my university and scientific committee of many international conferences here. I am involved in collaborative studies with scientific and clinical institutes since 2005 including Royan Institute, Iranian Blood Transfusion Organization (IBTO), Pasteur Institute of Iran, Iranian dental research center and Iranian Tissue regeneration Corporation. One of my special interests is tourism which has made me traveled more than 35 countries in 5 continents. I know each trip should be started by the first step…
