I was born in Mahabad, Iran in 1991. I completed my Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering at University of Tabriz in 2014, and my master's degree in Manufacturing Engineering at Sabanci Universitry in 2017.

Research interests

My research is in the kinematic and mechanical modelling of gear hobbing operation. In the course of my master's degree, I worked on dynamics and chatter stability as well as chatter suppression techniques in different metal cutting operations.
