Personal profile

Academic Biography

I have had the privilege to work as a lecturer in Economics at the International Business School of Teesside University since November 2022. My background is in Energy Economics, and I am focusing on integrating economic theory into practice in teaching.  I am greatly enthusiastic about working and researching in a highly interdisciplinary environment.

I was a research fellow at the Energy and bioproduct research institute (EBRI) at Aston University. I have conducted research to simulate the sustainability impacts of the bioenergy sector in the UK and the Philippines. The projects in which I have been involved were funded by Supergen Bioenergy Hub (SGBH) and Innovate UK.

Previously, I worked in the energy industry in Iran for three years (2015-2018) as a business development director and a member of the project management office (PMO) for a petrochemical mega plant. Following that, I was employed as an assistant professor of energy economics at Niroo Research Institute (NRI) from 2018 to 2021.
