I am a senior lecturer (associate professor) in supply chain management at Hertfordshire Business School with an insatiable appetite for music, literature and travelling. I was born in Tehran, Iran 36 years ago, have lived in Turkey, Wales and England following my studies towards a PhD in Management Sciences. I love classical music, in particular Johann Sebastian Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. I am also a bookworm and my favourite novelists are Fyodor Dostoevsky, Ernest Hemingway, Mario Vargas Llosa and Nikolai Gogol. I follow an 80/20 vegan/pescatarian diet and in my free time, I read books, play online chess and write. I also love travelling with family and friends.

I have been to many parts of the world; from the leafy springs of Tehran to the mesmerising evenings of the Bosporus strait in Istanbul, the genuine hospitality of people in Lisbon, the awe-inspiring beauty of La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, the stunning Amsterdam canals, the alluring landscapes of Bergen, the dazzling coastlines of California, the sheer elegance of Turin, and the tranquillity of the spectacular Vancouver. I have read books, watched movies and listened to music all my life and my taste has changed from Jules Verne to Tolstoy, from Sound of Music to Belle de Jour and from ABBA to Bach.
