Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD (as Co-Supervisor) - email supervisor to discuss availability.

I am currently a researcher in multidisciplinary engineering design at the University of Adelaide working on the Mine Operational Vehicle Electrification project. In this project, I am working on designing the backbone energy infrastructure for electrified mines based on renewable energy sources (RESs) and battery energy storage systems (BESS) to facilitate the sustainable transition of the Australian mining industry to electrification.  

Before this role, I was a postdoc at the Sharif University of Technology in Iran, where I got my M.Sc. and Ph.D., working on the optimal operation and integration of electric vehicles (EVs) into power distribution systems. Also, I was a visiting researcher at the University of Calgary, Canada, between 2018 and 2020 focusing on power system planning and RES integration.

My research interests include power system planning and operation, transactive energy, renewable energy integration, and optimization, with a particular focus on its application in power systems.
