I graduated with doctorate degree in Dentistry and completed my specialty in Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology in Iran, follow that I worked as Assistant Professor at Dental School for 5 years. My undergraduate research project was published in International Endodontic Journal and I have the honor that the cover image of Journal illustrates my work.
My passion for research compelled me to undertake an MSc in Molecular Pathology and Genomics at Bart's Cancer Institute of excellence, Queen Mary University of London. My project was about “PI3K signalling pathway in metabolic flux of Glutamine”. During working in the lab, I have gained skills in molecular research such as cell culture, Western Blot, Transfection, PCR, cell proliferation assay, 3D cell culture and immunohistochemistry. My role within the Dental School will be to equip students with the required technical skills and correct code of conduct in order to help them excel in their future careers as Dentists and researchers of the highest standards.
I thoroughly enjoy passing on knowledge and learning from my students. My goal as a teacher is not only to teach students what to think, but also how to think so they become analytical and free thinkers. In addition, I want to instill the right combination of enthusiasm and passion for learning balanced with humility, we should also have an increased sense of responsibility and accountability. I always welcome feedback from students and how I can make classes more engaging and effective.
