I have a PhD in Industrial Engineering from the faculty of Industrial and Systems Engineering at Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran. Currently, I serve as an assistant professor of ISE at the faculty of Industrial and Systems Engineering of Tarbiat Modares University, Tehran. My PhD dissertation was on hub location problems under uncertainty and competition. As part of my PhD studies, I spent nine months in CIRRELT (Montréal, QC) as a research intern working on robust optimization models for hub location problems. My main research interests include facility layout and location, logistics and supply chain management (with a focus on risk, disaster, and environmental issues), project management and planning, exact optimization algorithms for integer programming problems, and optimization under uncertainty using stochastic programming and robust optimization models and techniques. The results of my research have appeared in various outlets, including but not limited to Transportation Research Part B, International Journal of Production Economics, Computers & Operations Research, International Journal of Production Research, and Computers & Industrial Engineering.
