About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy of science and technology and a graduate research fellow on ethics of AI at the Center for Ethics at the University of Toronto. In 2015, I obtained a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from the Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, where I worked on optimization of large-scale decision-making problems. Before coming to Toronto, I was a  graduate research fellow at the Group for Research in Decision Analysis (GERAD, Montreal) and Transport and Mobility Laboratory (EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland). Prior to Canada, I studied at Royal institute of Technology (Stockholm, Sweden) and Polytechnic of Tehran (Iran).

My main research interests lie at the intersection of philosophy of science and philosophy of artificial intelligence. I am also very interested in philosophical, ethical, and societal implications of technology. In history of philosophy, I have developed interests in Arabic and Persian philosophy. Details about my dissertation project will be updated soon.
