I'm a Ph.D. student and research assistant at the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering, University of California, Davis. I’ve chosen my academic discipline based on my passion for making the earth a better place to live for all the species. Population growth, water resources depletion, deforestation, pollution or contamination of soil and water, soil erosion, overconsumption, and inevitable consequences of climate change are just some of the crucial issues that threaten sustainable agriculture and food security. I use computer modeling and scripting, machine learning, remote sensing, and GIS to better understand the nature of sophisticated environmental and agricultural problems in our developing world and hopefully, to solve them!

My Personal Interests

Movies and Theatre

I love cinema and I’ve been working as an amateur theatre actor when I was younger. Marlon Brando, Daniel Day-Lewis, Tom Hardy, and Matthew McConaughey are some of my favorite actors. Among Directors, I admire the works of Andrei Tarkovski, Abbas Kiarostami, David Lynch, Krzysztof Kieślowski, Woody Allen, Stanley Kubrick, and Akira Kurosawa.

Literature and Poetry

I’m a poet in my first language (Persian). I’ve got an Instagram page to share some of my works. Maybe you were not able to read my works, but you still can enjoy the photos of my page which are taken by my friends and all of them are shared on my page originally. (Instagram ID: @armanipoetry)

Philosophy

I enjoy thinking systematically about the existence. I’ve read some of the important philosophers like Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche. I’ve just started reading evolutionary philosophy with the help of a professor who happened to be our neighbor!

GYM!

I really like my gym and I’m getting good at it!
