    Academic backgrounds

    Since Oct. 2008 (for 4 years): PhD research project on wide-field, high dynamic range, high fidelity imaging with aperture array radio telescopes, Kapteyn astronomical institute, Groningen- the Netherlands.


    Sep. 2006- May.2008: MS c. in “Advanced Technologies in Radio Astronomy and Space Science”, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg- Sweden.


    Sep. 1998- Sep. 2004: BSc. in Electrical Engineering (Telecommunication), Khaje Nasir Toosi University of Technology (KNTU) - one of national top universities in Tehran- Iran.


    Work experiences

    Summer 2008: summer studentship at ASTRON- Netherlands Foundation for Research in Astronomy- working on the feasibility study of SETI with LOFAR under supervision of Michael Garrett. Dwingeloo- the Netherlands.


    Aug. 2007- May. 2008: traineeship at ASTRON working on my master project under supervision of Stefan J. Wijnholds and Arnold van Ardenne. Dwingeloo- the Netherlands.


    This master project aimed to find suitable quantitative thresholds for RFI detection and calibration error detection at LOFAR station. It was mathematical analysis on real data of LOFAR station for engineering purpose.


    Jan. 2005- Jul. 2006: worked full-time as a network transmission planning engineer in an international company called Taliya- the first prepaid GSM network operator in all over of Iran- Tehran-Iran.


    This work covered the determination of all main parameters of the radio relay system which includes network configuration, system capacity, performance objectives and radio frequencies to plan reliable and available MW links. I was in charge of network transmission planning for Tehran and Mashhad provinces (two of large and important cities in Iran).


    Summer 2000: as an apprentice at research center of Jahad-Keshavarzi, worked on Hydrophones sensors and use of that in Sonar project, Tehran-Iran.

    - Travel grant from RadioNet to attend the 2nd workshop on 3rd Generation Calibration in Radio Astronomy, Sep. 2011- Portugal.


    - Full fund from XXX URSI General Assembly and Scientific Symposium of International Union of Radio Science 2011. Aug. 2011- Turkey.

    - Full fund from MCCT SKADS for the workshop on deep field imaging with SKA in Cambridge.


    Other nonprofessional work experiences

    - A member of students’ scientific committee in KNTU; I tried to improve the scientific state of affairs for students as much I could e.g. by recovering a small and out of order lab. It was called “Free Lab” for juniors to come, gain basic experiences and prepare for more serious projects. That lab was managed by a team of students including me.


    - A member of students’ scientific committee and music group in KNTU; I designed their official signs, brochures, cover of magazines and posters whenever it was needed and I could.


    - In addition to my studies at KNTU, I wrote scenario of animations which were used by a private company to make multimedia training CD’s. Those were for visualizing and demonstrating the mathematical and physical concepts to high school and college students. I wrote some non-scientific scenarios for kids as well.
