I had my early education up to my undergraduate degree in my home country, Iran. Upon receiving my bacholar's degree in electrical engineering in 1993 from Tehran University, I started workin in Oil & Gas companies for couple years. I came to US in 1995 to pursue an MBA degree. Soon after taking econ and finance courses, I found my calling in finance. I got my PhD in finance in 2001 from the University of Arizona and started my first acedemic job at the University of Nevada-Reno. Just one year before going up for tenure, I left UNR to come to Oklahoma State University and pursue my career goals in a highly ranked Big 12 school.

I am also the Finance Ph.D. Program Coordinator. Program information for the Ph.D. program can be found here:
