I am interested in the understanding, modeling, and control of complex engineering and natural systems. I am UAM Flight Operations Research Lead at Joby Aviation, Santa Cruz, California. Prior to joining Joby, I was a researcher at the University of California, Berkeley. I received my Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering, specializing in chaotic dynamics, from the Sharif University of Technology, and was a post-doctoral fellow at Florida State University where I worked on various problems in kinetic theory, N-body systems, and galactic dynamics. I have held academic positions at the Sharif University of Technology [Professor of Mechanical Engineering], Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton [Visiting Astrophysics Member], and Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences, Zanjan [Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics]. My current research centers on developing the science and technology of the dense operations of eVTOL vehicles for Urban Air Mobility (UAM), optimal and nonlinear control, dynamics of planetary systems, and galactic dynamics.
