Major: Materials Engineering – PhD
Fun fact: I started playing violin when I was 8, but when I turned 18 I chose to become a Materials Engineer, the most opposite to arts and now I’m getting my Ph.D. in it! So, I made a violin out of metal!

Major: Civil Engineering – PhD
Fun fact: I used to believe I can never code and my brain is just not capable of solving programming problems. I’ve failed basic programming twice in college. I ended up hating it and promised myself to stay away from it. But here I am now, at the third year of my PhD, in computational mechanics. coding up difficult problems in physics and mechanics every single day. and you know what, it’s just the best feeling in the world when you go past your fears and failures.
Major: Computer science – PhD
Fun fact: I wanted to become an astronaut (just like many other kids!). Then I found out I cannot be a female astronaut in my country. When I was at the hight of disappointment, I saw Anousheh Ansari who was the first space traveler to go to space. She lived my dreams and she was an Electrical Engineer- Computer Scientist! So I decided to follow her footsteps and become a very rich Electrical Engineer- Computer Scientist and then go to space! I’m ECE alumni and currently studying PhD at CS department. I’m only a light year away from my dreams.
