About me

I was born in Kashan, Isfahan, IRAN in 1992. I attended NODET high school which is a national selective school in Iran developed specifically for the development of exceptionally talented students. My father is a mechanical engineer and my mother has a mater of public health. I have one younger sister who is currently a medicine student in IRAN.

My husband and I got married in 2015 and currently live in Houston, Texas. We met each other when we were undergraduate students at Sharif University together. He is also a Ph.D. student in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rice University.

In my spare time, I enjoy swimming and playing volleyball. I also like holding parties and dancing with my friends. I am also a big fan of Persian music and want to start learning Piano soon.
