I am a dermatologist, epidemiologist, and medical educator, who before migrating to Canada was working as an Associate Professor of Dermatology at Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran. I studied my MD, dermatology residency, and MSc of Medical Education (MScMedEd) in Tehran, Iran, and my MSc(PH) and PhD (Epidemiology and Public Health) at the Unit of Epidemiology and Global Health, Department of Public Health and Clinical Medicine, Umeå University, Umeå, Sweden. More than 20 years of medical practice and studying in Iran and Sweden provided me an opportunity to get familiar with dermatology and public health issues in both developed and developing countries. My research has been focused on cutaneous leishmaniasis. I have published 49 papers in peer-reviewed journals and presented 99 lectures at national and international congresses. I strongly believe in life-long learning and interdisciplinary research and education.
