Doctoral Researcher

Doctoral Researcher at “Welfare Health and Management” (WELMA)


I am a researcher at Welfare Health and Management (WELMA) doctoral program. My background in bachelor's degree was Social Sciences. I completed my Master's degree in Sociology. I did my M.S. thesis on the "determinants of mental health issues in urban areas: a case study in Tehran". I developed more interest in mental health within forced migrant communities and as a result, I decided to follow my career in Social Work with my thesis focused on the "mental health of Afghan forced migrants in Finland".
