Career Summary

Biography

I'm currently a PhD candidate in International Business at The University of Newcastle, Australia, who is near completion, expecting to finish by end of March, 2020. My main research interest is in socio-technical systems, sustainable transitions, industry dynamics, innovation networks, open innovation and science, technology & innovation policies, where I have authored and co-authored several academic publications including books, book chapters, refereed journal articles, and conference papers. 

The title of my PhD thesis is 'a dynamic approach to the socio-technical interactions between technologies' with a focus on vehicle powertrain technologies. My aim is to uncover the socio-technical interactions among the powertrain technologies. Here, I explore and simulate the complex behaviour as well as the dynamics and co-dynamics of the powertrain technologies using System Dynamics modelling (via VENSIM), with a long horizon until the year 2050.

In 2009, I obtained my BSc. in Industrial Engineering at Yazd University, Yazd, Iran, and later in 2012 I obtained my MSc. in Management of Innovation & Technology at Amirkabir University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. I have ever since supervised four Honours students to completion.
