I am a graduate student in Economics and, jointly, Statistics, at the University of California, Irvine. Previously, I obtained a Bachelor of laws with a minor in economics from the University of Tehran, Iran.
Just like my academic background, I have a broad area of research interest. I have research experience in latent variable modeling and longitudinal survival analysis. I am also learning about the implementation of optimal transport and measure interpolation in macroeconomic vector autoregression (VAR) models. I am eager to learn more about causal inference analysis and conduct research in that area. On the other hand, I enjoy reading about political economy and the impacts of international organs on growth and development. I have research experience in Human rights studies. Lastly, as some sort of a hobby, I sometimes read about, and write short pieces on the history of Persian literature.
