I'm a molecular geneticist and the main focus of my work is parentage testing, population genetics, evolution, genetic diversity, conservation and disease traits of horses. I am also involved in some research projects, mainly in breed diversity. Most of my free time I spend with the polo horse and horse riding in the Iranian polo federation.
