FIELD OF RESEARCH
Areas of interest: Islamic History of Iran, Persian diplomatics and historiography, political analysis of modern Iran.
My main field of interest is the chancellery practice of early modern Iran, its political and institutional history and the examination of late medieval type of chronicles.
I am currently researching the political history of Iran in the eighteenth century, as well as the diplomatic practices of the period, which does not appear to be in the centre of academic research, in contrast to the Safavid and Qajar eras. In my doctoral dissertation, I have examined several eighteenth-century royal decrees from the Āstān-i Quds-i Rażawī of Mashhad.
