Before coming to the University of Toronto, I did my BA and MA in Economics at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad (Iran) and the University of New Hampshire (USA), respectively. I am currently doing my PhD under the supervision of Joseph Berkovitz at the Institute and I will be a research fellow at the Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University from August 2019 to May 2020.
My primary interest lies in the intersection of epistemology and decision theory. In particular I would like to trace the implications of non-evidentialist epistemologies for characterization of the concept of economic rationality. I am highly interested in pragmatist philosophers (esp. Charles S. Peirce, Frank P. Ramsey, Isaac Levi, and Hilary Putnam) and their accounts of knowledge and rationality.
My secondary research interest is the history of economic thought. In particular I would like to offer new historical explanations about the economic works of Charles S. Peirce, Frank P. Ramsey, and John M. Keynes.
Last but not least, I think children are the most beautiful creatures of our world. They always excite me with their pure honesty. I hope in future I can contribute to the educational theory and pedagogical approach associated with the the movement called ‘Philosophy for Children’.
