I,ve been graduated from center of advance study in Anthropology in 2013 with a degree in Biological (Physical) Anthropology, as a University Grants Commission (UGC) fellow funded by Indian Government. I completed my senior thesis in the anthropological laboratory of the department of anthropology and center of advance study in geology, University of Pnajab, Chandigarh, India; focusing on archaeo-metric analyzing prehistoric stone tools collected from 10 localities, situated in Central India (Madhya Pradesh) across Narmada basin. Now I turned my attention to studying genetic investigations of human diversities and its development to understand important events in recent human evolution.  


Personal Information;


I am originally from Rasht, Guilan, Iran. For me is easy to adapt to any types of environments but I prefer to live in cold climates. When not busy with research, I like to read novel widely, listening to classic music, walking across the street with lots of restaurants and taste all the foods cooking in the restaurants.
