Amirhossein was born in Tehran in 1996. He did his undergraduate studies at the Sharif University of Technology in electrical engineering and minored in the philosophy of science. He also took some courses in economics during his studies at the Sharif university. He changed his major from engineering to law and did his master's at Shahid Beheshti University in International Law with his thesis under the supervision of Dr. Ansari titled "Computational Analysis of the Sources of International Law."
He joined the Phanous Research and Innovation Centre in the Spring of 2020. During his time at Phanous, he participated in several projects, including but not limited to preparing the draft of the Iranian Personal Data Protection Act, writing a comprehensive report on the legal aspects of the concept of Artificial Intelligence, writing a comprehensive report on the data protection laws of the United States, research on privacy-preserving technologies such as Differential Privacy and their legal implications, a comprehensive report on the legal aspects of data protection authorities, giving a workshop on the EU proposal on Artificial Intelligence, and working with Iranian digital industry stakeholders.
He is going to commence his DPhil in Law at the University of Oxford in the fall of 2022. The topic of his dissertation would concern the role of the private sector in constitutionalizing Artificial Intelligence. What intrigues him the most is the power, from day-to-day encounters with its social forms within daily interactions with others to its more abstract institutional forms.
If he is going to choose a word that—wishfully—represents him the most, that word would be the opposite of shallow. He believes he has strived to become the epitome of it, regardless of whether he has succeeded. Therefore, the statement of any purpose that he pursues in his academic life, directly or indirectly, relates to his endeavor to gain the deepest knowledge possible. Unlike many other children who wish to become a pilot or a firefighter, he has never imagined himself without becoming a doctor-scientist-sage, even in his most childish dreams. Thus, he reckons that doing his DPhil in Law at Oxford is the next step he can take to follow the path he has envisaged to achieve his goal of becoming a scholar one day.
