Short Biography

I was born in Mashhad, the capital city of Khorasan - an ancient province of Iran and the birthplace of great poets Ferdowsi (935-1020 AD), Omar Khayyam (1048-1131 AD), and Akhavan Sales (1928-1990 AD). I studied engineering at Abadan Institute of Technology and UCLA, and, later, Computer Science and Cognitive Science in Indiana University, where I became a fargonaut at the Center for Research on Concepts and Cognition(CRCC). After teaching at IU's School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC)and the University of Redlands for a few years, I am back in beautiful Bloomington with SoIC.
