Bio/Research

I am an industrial engineer with both academic and industrial experience. I hold a PhD from Polytechnique Montreal and obtained my master’s and bachelor’s degrees in Iran. All three are in industrial engineering. I conducted my doctorate program in the field of occupational health and safety (OHS), with a focus on bypassing safeguards on machinery as a common OHS problem in industry. In parallel with my doctoral studies, I had an opportunity to collaborate with a team of researchers from various fields who were working at Polytechnique Montreal and IRSST on a new research project about the impacts of Industry 4.0 on occupational safety.

In addition to my academic background, I have nine years of experience at National Gas Company as a senior systems analysis specialist and then advanced to be head of the Systems Analysis Department. I have worked on implementing, auditing and maintaining integrated management systems, including an OHS management system (OHSAS 18001), a quality management system (ISO 9001) and an environmental management system (ISO 14001). I audited OHS and process performance as a certified internal auditor/lead auditor along with the audit team.
