I'm an assistant professor and core faculty at the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University. I completed a Ph.D. in Operations Management and a Master in Business Analytics at Naveen Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas, and prior to that, I earned a Master of Science and Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from the Sharif University of Technology. My research interests are Sustainable Operations Management, Renewable Energy and Environmental Policy, Pricing and Revenue Management, and Energy Economics. I apply a combination of mathematical and statistical modeling, and analytical techniques such as game theory, optimization, data analysis, and forecasting.
I really enjoy reading and listening to psychology books and podcasts. I am so passionate about volunteering and community involvement for children and women, photography, writing, and blogging. Baking, learning piano, and tennis are my favorite activities these days.
