I am a systems simulation enthusiast coming to South-Netherlands originally from Southwest-Iran via Southwest-England!

My research interests fall down to the use of different simulation methods such as Discrete-Event Simulation (DES), Agent-Based Modelling (ABM), and System Dynamics (SD) in addressing healthcare with a concentration on the infectious diseases, and freight transportation problems. I’m also interested in the applications of qualitative research as well as participatory methods such as Design Sprints and Community-based workshops for determining the research problems, identifying the scope, and communicating the research results with the stakeholders and the public to encourage behaviour change.

PDPC provides me with the best opportunity to use all my previous knowledge as well as develop many new skills to address a very critical and important problem as a part of the team.
