Due to my uncle being a poultry nutritionist and my father being an animal physiologist, their skills and their work ruts encouraged me to learn more about animals. So, after I graduated from high school, I took a university entrance exam in 2008, and thank to achieving a good mark, I could start my academic education at the University of Tehran in the field of Poultry Science in 2009. During my bachelor's, I tried to do my best to fortify my knowledge with participation in different internships periods from 2010 to 2013. After I completed my B.Sc. in 2014, I enrolled in a master's degree in the field of Poultry Nutrition at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, which is an outstanding university in the field of poultry nutrition in Iran. Due to my research interests (supplementary minerals and vitamins affects, amino acids requirements, investigate of alternative natural products of an antibiotic such as probiotic, prebiotic, organic acids, and medical plants), besides my thesis, I have experienced in six projects as an assistant or associate researcher. I published the results of these projects to ten articles in first-quartile peer-reviewed journals. My M.Sc. thesis was about of effects of different dietary levels of calcium iodate on productive performance, egg quality, and iodine accumulation in eggs of laying hens and I could present my thesis with a good mark (19.84 out of 20). During my master's and after that, I have worked in some compony as an R&D and technical member. Also, since 2016, I am the Reviewer board of some international scientific journals. In September 2021, I joined Dr. Elijah Kiarie’s Monogastric Nutrition lab as a research assistant. My research focuses on the effects of feeding broiler breeders with new-generation forms of trace minerals and the subsequent effects on offspring performance, immunocompetence, skeletal development, and gut health. After this Ph.D. degree, I hope to work in Canada to apply my knowledge to promote the performance of poultry in industry and academia.
