My passion for nature and deep concern over global warming and environmental degradation have always driven my academic pursuits. This commitment led me to focus my doctoral thesis on the flora of Iran and the Mediterranean region, areas critical for understanding plant evolution, adaptation, and conservation. My research is not just an academic endeavor; it is an urgent response to the pressing need to preserve our ecosystem and combat climate change. Through studying these biodiversity hotspots, I aim to contribute to safeguarding our planet’s biological heritage for future generations.
