I was born on 3 June 1968 in Tabriz, Iran. I have three older brothers who are all educated in different fields: informatics, medicine and law. I am single (not married) and I don’t have any children. I obtained my BSc in food science and technology in 1992 from the University of Tabriz. I continued my education in France with a MSc in food science and technology in 1994 from Blaise Pascal University. I received an industrial fund to continue my studies there and finally obtained my PhD in 1998. I returned to Iran immediately and I was employed at the University of Tehran as an assistant professor in 1999. I received several promotions and achievements (such as the best researcher of the University of Tehran, best researcher in the region of Tehran, best researcher of Iran (male or female), distinguished female researcher of Iran and so on) during these years. Now, I am a professor at the University of Tehran.
