I am a PhD candidate in physics, researching the chromosome organization in bacterial cells. Back in Iran, I accumulated practical knowledge in executive and policy-making positions in academia and industry. Since I began my program, I have voluntarily co-run various activities for graduate students and represented the GSA on different committees on the campus.
My vision as a GSA director is to implement policies and services that improve the quality of life for us, enhance the research mentorship, empower us with transferable skills, and ensure transparency in the GSA and different sectors of the university. I will collaborate with our colleagues at the GSA to accommodate the unprecedented changes brought about by Covid-19 and seize the opportunities opened up by it. To achieve the visions, I will rely on the experiences and skills of my fellows on the campus, using online platforms. A vote for me is a vote for thoughtful advocacy for you!
