Reading anything Mohammad could get his eyes on from an early age soon turned into a thirst for knowledge, then for understanding. But as no understanding is ever complete without self-understanding, he inevitably fell for philosophy and psychology.
Realizing the interconnectedness of everything was a profound, game-changing experience for him. Moved by a desire to improve the lives of his fellow human beings, he chose to study law and was accepted into the Shahid Beheshti University school of law. He received his bachelor's degree with top honors and started his master’s degree in international trade law in the same school, having earned the first rank in the national entrance exam.
It was obvious to him that learning rules and laws alone would not necessarily help to achieve his lifelong philanthropic dream. So, Mohammad started his self-imposed learning and experience-gathering mission outside academia. Guided by a strong belief in a multi-disciplinary approach, he spent years studying the fields of knowledge tangential to law, working legal and non-legal jobs, and delving deep into the arts, all to enrich his lived experience.
But Mohammad never lost sight of his goal during this detour. He finally made it full circle, ranking first in the national entrance exam and getting admitted to his alma mater as a Ph.D. candidate in international trade and investment law. He also passed the bar exam and started his traineeship to become an attorney.
Now Mohammad is focused on researching the new frontiers of law, such as the law of online platforms, Artificial Intelligence, Industry 4.0 & blockchain. He is a researcher in the OPlaw Lab. of Phanous now, pursuing this latest journey.
