I am a PhD student within the Renewable Energy department, working under the supervision of  Dr Xiaoyu Yan.  My research focusses on environmental evaluation of renewable energies, particularly techno-economic and social impacts of large-scale production of bioenergy. The methodology generally involves developing a spatially and temporally explicit Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) model. 


2011 MSc Environmental and energy engineering (University of Sheffield)
2008 BSc Mining Engineering (University of Tehran/Kerman)


2012 - 2013 Graduate research assistant at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland
