Social media has begun to reform the face of human life. We need to understand how our new societies work.

I am a father, a husband and a faculty member at the Physics Department and Institute for Cognitive and Brain Sciences of Shahid Beheshti University (SBU). My fields of research are Complex Systems and Statistical Physics, specifically, I work on Complex Networks and Finance & Social Science. Here you can find out more about me, the Center For Complex Networks & Social Data Science and some courses in network science! 


My projects focus on the social networks and media which have  tremendous share in human life and his society. Where the norms of today’s education and training will not guarantee to have a successful human in the future. A successful citizen in twenty-first-century society needs new skills to get. Social media is a large laboratory to test our models and theories that directly. Where, we access to various kind of data sets in our social life.  The main current work of mine is concerned with applying the theoretical methods that have been developed for the analysis of stochastic fluctuations and complex networks. Developing new algorithms and quantifying the characteristics of stochastic processes, complex networks, and random matrix theory are some of the main challenges in my current research on such complex systems. I am interested in gaining deeper insights into stochastic processes, especially those that are non-stationary, coupled series and identify applications in other fields to which I can apply the methods and expertise. In order to improve my abilities in understanding the nature of the processes, I intend to investigate whether the methods that I have developed can be applied to finance & social networks and network of genes in tumor cells.
