I am a second year PhD student at TOP research group at Dalhousie University. Previously, I completed a M.Sc. and a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering in Iran. During my M.Sc. I worked on photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) and their optical characteristics. I have also worked as a lab instructor and lecturer in Iran. Currently I am working on non-linear optical processes such as slow light generation and wavelength conversion inside highly nonlinear mediums such as PCFs.
