I am a researcher and a data storyteller originally from Iran and currently based in Vancouver. I worked as a software engineer for 6 years before taking an exit to figure out how technology can be a part of life. I use my programming and data science skills to explore answers to simple yet profound questions that arise in real life, like how are my clothes made and why does it matter to know?

When I’m not investigating a new question or writing about it, I enjoy throwing some kicks in taekwondo class, writing poems, interviewing people, and reading ancient books.

The promise of technology in my opinion, is a future where we have understood and alleviated our (currently broken) relationship with nature and people.

Get In Touch

I am looking for collaborations and always enjoy a good conversation. Currently I’m mostly interested in storytelling through data visualization, word analysis and community detection.
