I have a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering and a master’s degree in Business Administration both from Sharif University of Technology in Iran. After studying in academia, I decided to move to management consulting. For nearly four years, I worked for several commercial and non-profit organizations. Then, I returned to academia to pursue a research career. I completed my PhD program at the Università della Svizzera italiana (University of Lugano) in Switzerland. Then, I visited Hanken School of Economics (HUMLOG institute) by a postdoc.moblity fellowship granted by Swiss National Science Foundation. In 2017, I joined Tampere University as an assistant professor in supply chain management.
