Welcome to my personal website.

I am a Ph.D. student in Data Science at HEC Montreal (the Business School of the University of Montreal). Before joining HEC, I received an M.Sc. in Economics and a B.Sc. in Industrial Engineering from the Sharif University of Technology, Iran. I was also a research fellow in Applied Economics at the Tehran Institute for Advanced Studies (TeIAS) for four years.

In general, I enjoy utilizing data to solve the practical issues that businesspeople and policymakers face. I am primarily interested in two areas of academic research: causal inference using applied econometrics and machine learning, and time series forecasting using deep learning. I am particularly interested in issues relating to energy economics/policy and electricity markets.
