He received B.Sc. in Land Surveying Engineering (2000), and then the M.Sc. degree in Geodesy from K.N.Toosi University,Tehran, Iran in 2002, the Ph.D. degree from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, in 2011. He promoted to Docent in Geodesy (2013). He is working as Professor at University of Gävle and Senior Researcher at KTH.

He is member of editorial board in Journal of Geodetic Science since 2013.

Except his academic activities he was project manager of railway and highway studies in different phases of construction of the projects in Metra Consulting Engineering Co. from 2001-2007 in Tehran-Iran.
