I’m Co-Founder of STEM Fellowship and an MD/PhD candidate at the University of Toronto. I’ve spent part of the past 23 years moving around the world: being born in Iran, spending around 7 years of my childhood in the UK, my teenage years back in Tehran, and finally settling in Canada 5 years ago when I was in grade 12.

My fascination for science started to blossom when he was in grade 9, back in my Iranian high school’s chemistry lab, and thanks to some incredible teacher-mentors. Since then, I’ve explored (and published) in nano chemistry, cancer immunology, neurosurgery and neuroscience. I’ve also published in the political sciences and scientific communication. My passion for science and research is why I’m pursuing the combined physician-scientist training at U of T, and for my work as a social entrepreneur.

Outside of school and STEM Fellowship, I’ve led and/or advised youth engagement initiatives within the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, the Canadian Red Cross, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research, Science World BC and the League of Innovators. I’m a Board member for the federal youth civic engagement charity- Apathy is Boring-, an advisor to PeerBuds (block-chain educational startup in Silicon Valley) and the pre-health sciences course director for NextGenU- a free, accredited online learning platform for aspiring healthcare professionals around the world.
