Research outline

The cranium consists of several bones that are joined together along their edges by soft tissue called sutures. Early fusion of sutures is a medical condition known as Craniosynostosis. I am trying to understand this condition from a biomechanical point of view.


In 2006, I completed my BSc in Mechanical Engineering at Tabriz University (Iran), where I became interested in the field of Biomedical Engineering. I started my MSc in Biomedical Engineering-Biomechanics at Sahand University of Technology (Iran) in 2008 following a national entrance exam and completed this course in 2011. My MSc thesis was focused on designing patient-specific craniofacial implants.

In May 2014, I moved to the University of Hull to continue my education. I started a MSc by research degree at the University of Hull, looking into biomechanics of craniosynostosis under supervision of Dr Moazen and Prof Fagan. Later in September 2015, I moved to University College London to keep continue my research on craniosynostosis with Dr Moazen.
