I'm a postdoctoral fellow in Alan Mullen laboratory. I have a P.hD. degree in molecular genetics (UNC Charlotte, 2012), a masters degree in biochemistry (Razi Univesrity, 2007) and a bachelor's degree in biology (University of Tehran, 2004).
I live in Cambridge, MA and work in Boston, MA. Our lab is located in the Massachusetts General Hospital main campus and it's affiliated with MGH, Harvard Medical School, Center for Regenerative Medicine, and Harvard Stem Cells Institute.
I study the mechanisms by which the noncoding elements of the genome, such as enhancers and regulatory RNAs, function to determine the genetic programs of healthy and diseased cells.
