I was born in Iran and came to U.S. in 1982 to escape political persecution. I obtained my MPH and PhD at Yale School of Public Health. I have spent the majority of my professional career studying the epidemiology of and developing interventions to reduce HIV/AIDS among injection drug users and other at risk populations in U.S. and internationally. More recently I have developed an interest in ethical issues in conduct of research in developing countries. I am also deeply interested to contribute to prevention of violent armed conflict and its devastating negative consequences for public health. I teach courses on global HIV/AIDS, Global Health and Research Methods and Ethics. I enjoy playing soccer in my free time.
