Amir Tohidi

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Social and Engineering Systems program at the MIT Institute for Data Systems and Society. I am also pursuing a Ph.D. in Statistics at the Interdisciplinary Program for Statistics, and affiliated with the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems.
I received my Bachelor’s degree with a double major in Electrical Engineering and Physics at the Sharif University of Technology.

Considered broadly, I am a Computational Social Scientist. I study human behavior, how it interacts with information systems, and how it is shaped by different social and economic settings. I work on a range of empirical social and economic problems. The interdisciplinary nature of my research is a manifestation of my diverse training and interest in meaningful and intriguing problems.
