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, metaphysics, philosophy of mathematics, 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.
