Before coming to the U of T, I did my BA and MA in Economics at the Ferdowsi University of Mashhad and the University of New Hampshire, respectively. I’m interested in identifying the limits of the explanatory frameworks utilized in the neoclassical economics at both micro and macro level. The central philosophical question I have in mind is how we can develop a mathematical formalism to account for our best mental habits with which we meet the uncertain future? I tend to use different interpretations of probability and pragmatic philosophies to answer this question. I’m also interested in doing historical works to find a link between philosophical and economic writings of C. S. Peirce, Frank Ramsey, and John M. Keynes, and their influence on later generations of economists.
Outside of Academia, I spend most of my time watching animes and reading novels.
