Personal Information

My name is Mehdi Ghasemi (in Persian "مهدی قاسمی"). I was born in Iran - Tehran on February 1980, and grew up there.
I graduated from Amirkabir University of Technology with bachelor degree, August 2002, then finished my master degree in Tarbiat Modares University, August 2004.
After graduating in master degree I was working for IPM as a researcher between April 2004 and March 2005, then more than three years for Omigaman as a web developer and analyst.

In January 2006, I married to my lovely wife, Bahareh Esfahbod.

I received my Ph.D. in University of Saskatchewan, Department of Mathematics and Statistics under supervision of Professor S. Kuhlmann (Universität Konstanz) and Professor M. Marshall at August 2012. 
I was a postdoctoral researcher at University of Konstanz, Germany and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, from September to May 2014.
Currently I am employed at University of Saskatchewan, Canada, as a MITACS post-doctoral research fellow.
