I obtained my BSc (Hons) degree in Biology from Isfahan University, my second BSc (Hons) degree in Biomedical Science from Kingston University and my PhD in Cancer Research from University of Surrey in 2011. My PhD project was on “Targeting Homeobox genes for cancer immunotherapy”.

Prior to starting my PhD, I worked at various medical laboratories including haematology, immunology, microbiology and blood transfusion in Children’s Medical Centre. After completion of my doctorate, I lectured Life Science at Kingston College. I am currently lecturing at Kingston and Richmond University.
