About me

My Story

Born April 1982 in Tehran, Iran. Iran had a few years earlier witnessed an Islamic revolution that transformed the country from a modern monarchy to an Islamic republic as a theocracy. Two years before I was born, a brutal war had also broken out between Iran and Iraq. Few then knew that the war would last for eight years. In the late 80’s, my mother, my little brother and I left Iran and were reunited with our father in Norway. My father had left Iran in the mid-1980s after fighting the newly formed Islamic theocracy since 1979. Until 1999, we lived in Norway, when we moved to Malmö.

My medical studies at Lund University ended in 2011. Nowadays I work as a specialist doctor in emergency care at SUS Lund. In November 2017, I received my doctorate in medical sciences. My research focus is Acute Coronary Syndrome (AKS) and trauma. In addition, I have been a postdoctoral researcher at Lund University since November 2018. In addition to my medical studies, I also took a master’s degree in criminology in May 2014 from Malmö University. To date, I am still active as a criminologist and researcher in profiling, criminal intelligence and serious violent crimes at Malmö University. In 2015, I took a bachelor’s degree in intelligence analysis under the supervision of Professor Wilhelm Agrell, and in 2018 I completed my studies with a master’s degree in political science at Malmö University. In both intelligence analysis and political science, my focus is mainly on security studies, Iran and Iran’s intelligence services.
