I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the Ageing Epidemiology Research Unit. Previously, I was a researcher at the UCL Department of Epidemiology and Public Health (2014-2018). I hold an MD degree in Medicine from Tehran University and PhD degree in Epidemiology from the University of Cambridge.
My research is focused on identifying risk factors for Dementia and Parkinson's disease in the context of large epidemiological studies, public health modelling to forecast the future burden of dementia and disability at population level and estimating the impact of public health interventions on prevalence of these conditions.
