About me

I am a biologist and I started my PhD studies in cancer genetic epidemiology at IMM in 2013. My main research interest is cancer genetics and epigenetics.


MSc, Stockholm University and Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden, 2012

BSc, Tarbiat Moallem University of Tehran (Kharazmi University), Tehran, Iran, 2006

Research description

My PhD thesis aims at identifying genetic polymorphisms of importance for pediatric brain tumor susceptibility, and possible interactions between genes and environmental factors in the development of brain tumors in children as well as genetic prognostic factors for childhood brain tumors.
