Social media has begun to reform the face of human life. We need to understand how our new societies work.
I am a professor of complex systems physics and a member of the faculties at Shahid Beheshti University (physics department and Institute of Cognitive and Brain Sciences) and affiliated at Irkutsk National Research Technical University & Metropolitan London University. In December 2005, I obtained my PhD in physics from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran. My study focuses on complex networks and higher-order interaction systems, as well as a system with many interacting agents with collective and non-linear behaviors. My research study is not only theory-based, which allows me to gain a deeper understanding of phenomena. I also use real data to analyze and answer specific issues in a system.
Over my 17-year research career, I have accumulated knowledge and done research in theory and pure science, as well as applied data science, network and quantum machine learning, and company-related activities. My experience in international cooperation leads me to believe that I can be successful and efficient in collaboration with scientists at other universities by fostering synergy in scientific and educational promotion. For a long time, my research method has been influenced by complexity theory, network science, and data science. This allows me to interact with academics from different disciplines on a wide range of subjects, including social media and artificial intelligence, as well as some topics in social science, cognitive science, brain networks, and emerging new technologies. Addressing these concerns, in my opinion, is critical to building a fair and just society. Furthermore, I am able to resolve any new issues that arise promptly.
