Originally from Iran, I have embraced a global journey, living in the US since 2009 and moving to Germany in 2022. I hold a PhD in fiber and polymer science from N.C. State, complemented by a Global Executive MBA from Duke University.

With a distinguished career marked by leadership and innovation, I strive to stand at the forefront of digital transformation in the environmental sector. As the Director of Digital Ventures at M+H, I spearhead a multi-million-dollar digital business, dedicated to pioneering solutions in clean air, water, and mobility. With over a decade of experience in innovation, new business models, and venture building, my expertise has been instrumental in driving sustainable and profitable growth.

A pivotal moment in my career was the co-founding of MANN+HUMMEL’s first corporate startup, a testament to my entrepreneurial spirit and vision for the future of environmental technology. Leading global venture teams, I have successfully bridged geographical and cultural divides, fostering collaboration and innovation on a worldwide scale.

This international experience has equipped me with a unique perspective, enabling me to navigate the complexities of the global market with ease and insight.
