ABOUT

Biography

I was borne in March, 1982 in Esfahan-Iran in an academic family. Fell in love with teaching and academia in childhood as my favourite times were in the university which my father used to teach and sometimes my mother's high school classes. My father was a Farsi literature professor, so I was always surrounded with poems and novels and all the beautiful pearls of wisdom the Persian literature and culture has to offer. I started playing Tar and Se-Tar when I was about 14 years old and started to write short stories and poems about the same age. Recently, I started playing Kamancheh and experimenting with oil painting. As I was studying my mechanical engineering degree, I found computers and the way I could use them in manufacturing so interesting, so I’ve started to learn everything about ICT by myself, and then after graduation, I decided to continue my studies in IT management as Master’s degree. In my Master's, I found out that instead of focusing on the use of IT in manufacturing, I love the education technologies and that led me to my PhD research at Curtin University. After finishing my PhD in immersive technologies in education, I have started another Master's degree in Health Professions Education at the University of Western Australia. I am currently working as the lead research scientist in immersive technologies & learning and assessment at CingleVue International. I am also the founder of Wise Realities. I love photography and I also love cooking. So if you are anywhere near me and you like to taste some traditional Iranian food, just come over.
