Dr. Reza Parizi


 As a scholar and educator, it is imperative to address the question of relevance to real life in relation to our research and teaching philosophy. After extensive reading and reflection spanning over a decade, I firmly believe that neglecting this crucial aspect would result in a squandering of valuable time and resources.
