I completed my Ph.D. in Management of Technology at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and hold Master of Science in System Dynamics from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). I am Currently a Psychoanalyst in Training at CG Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland.

My work experience includes working as a system dynamicist on large scale simulation platforms of socio-technical systems in urban dynamics and circular economy, and as an industrial engineer in technology transfer projects in the Automobile Industry.

I have a passion for multi-disciplinary and trans-disciplinary approaches to learning and inquiry. I teach systems thinking, system dynamics and learning design at universities in Geneva and Lausanne area, where I have been awarded as the distinguished member of the faculty several times in the recent years.

My father taught Persian literature for around 40 years, before he retired. The picture shows me and my father teaching, the two classes are 42 years apart !
