Community Involvement

IAF SEOC Vice Chair and E1 Symposium Coordinator | 2018 - 2021

IAF SEOC and WD-YPP Committee Member, and GTS Coordinator| 2015 - 2021

I am a member of the Space Education and Outreach Committee (SEOC), and the Workforce Development-Young Professionals Program (WD-YPP) Committee.

Through these committees, I work as a member of the IAC International Program Committee to Chair sessions (usually E1.2). I also coordinate the Global Technical Symposium (GTS) program and the E1 Symposium at the International Astronautical Congress. I am also a judge for the IAF Emerging Space Leaders (ESL) Grant Programme.

Founding member and elected member of the executive committee, Aerospace Student’s Scientific Society (ASSS), K.N.Toosi University of Technology | 2007 - 2009

I found this organization with a group of friends as part of the new Faculty of Aerospace Engineering formed at our university. I helped develop the Society’s constitution, and contributed to the supervision of the first election.

I was elected to the Executive Committee, where I acted as treasurer and liaison with Office of Research Affairs, Faculty of Aerospace Engineering. We also organized multiple student events and extracurricular activities (Welcome day, Faculty independence day, field trip to Iran National Geographic Institution’s downlink Center, CATIA tutorials, …).
