He holds a BS in accounting from Tehran Business College, an MS in Economics from University of Kentucky, and a PhD in Sociology from University of Kentucky.

“Learning to think ‘critically’ is not easy, but we learn it through open mindedness and the rituals of engagement—be it writing, or speaking. The classroom—in its physical sense—is a unique space that facilitates this process.”
