I am interested in identifying patterns through longitudinal large datasets using computational linguistics approaches such as structural/semantic embedded topic modeling. I am currently looking at the discussions related to gain of function, which refers any modification of a biological agent that confers new or enhanced activity.

I was born in Tehran, Iran, and graduated from the University of Amsterdam with a Master of Science in Economics, and from Skema Business School with a Master of Research in Management and Innovation. I have been involved in research projects at LSCP, a psycholinguistic laboratory at École Normale Supérieure (ENS), the psychology department of Paris Descartes University, and the Center for Research in Experimental Economics and Political Decision Making (CREED) in Amsterdam. I am currently a Ph.D. student at EMLYON Business School.
