Nima graduated with a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering and also obtained a master's degree in Structural Civil Engineering from the University of Tabriz (One of the ten top universities in Iran). He is currently studing Ph.D at Florida International University (FIU) with Professor Dr. Amal Elawady in the field of wind engineering. He worked as a researcher at the Iran University of Science and Technology (IUST) with distinguished professor Dr. Ali Kaveh. His main research interests lie in the field of steel structures, particularly in the experimental and numerical investigation of Steel braced frames with Dr. Siamak Talatahari. In addition, he has been actively involved in the area of engineering optimization, especially in Evolutionary algorithms with Dr. Seyed Ali Mirjalili. Using comprehensive finite element analyses, he has also investigated using of different shaped sections in real steel frames. Recently, he has been engaged in research on the area of engineering optimization, especially in solving large-scale and practical structural design problems.
