How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
My research lies in the area of sustainable development and falls within three main categories: 1) sustainability transitions toward climate neutrality, 2) development of operations research (OR)-based frameworks for sustainability and efficiency assessment, and 3) policy implication for achieving equitable and just transitions. I serve as a reviewer for several journals such as Sustainable Development (Wiley) and Computers and Industrial Engineering (Elsevier).

Iran ranks as the fifth largest producer of crude oil in the world. Therefore, the country has the potential to play an important role in the global petroleum products market. Surprisingly, Iran cannot satisfy the domestic demand for transportation fuels, forcing the country to import gasoline and diesel fuel. To investigate this problem, this stud...
The current evaluation research on sustainable transportation concentrate mainly on environmental and economic aspects, leaving behind the social dimension of sustainability. This study applies the eco-inefficiency model to estimate the road transport performance of 28 European Union (EU) member states in terms of social sustainability. The propose...
The transport sector accounts for nearly one third of the world's total energy use, while inland transport alone is responsible for half of the global petroleum consumption. The expansion of motorization in newly industrialized economies necessitates setting realistic targets. To support decision-makers in better assessment of transport sustainabil...
The current study addresses several concerns regarding World Heritage Sites (WHSs) in developing countries. Using a novel super-efficiency parallel framework, this research firstly elucidates how WHS designation impacts the tourism sector in the 21 developing nations with the greatest number of WHSs from 2000 through 2016. The proposed parallel mod...
The assessment of transportation social sustainability appeals to many scholars as an essential issue but imposes a risk of selecting inadequate factors and methods to measure social phenomena. In this study, based on an extensive review, we identify the measurable key social indicators (instead of the economic or environmental factors commonly use...

There is increasing interest in research on lignin biodegradation compounds as potential building blocks in applications related to renewable products. More attention is necessary to evaluate the effects of the initial pH conditions during the bacterial degradation of lignin. In this study we performed experiments on lignin biodegradation under aci...
Iran is an energy superpower country with abundant crude oil and natural gas reserves. Against such background, Iran is an importer of gasoline and diesel fuel due to the imbalance between domestic supply and demand for transportation fuels. To examine this issue, a newly developed dynamic slack-based measure with network structure was formulated t...
This study proposes a novel triple bottom line-based network DEA measure. The measure aims to support decision-makers in better assessment of sustainability performance, as it introduces a comprehensive approach to evaluate the system considering the triple bottom line of sustainability: social development, economic growth, and environmental impact...
This paper examines the impact of UNESCO World Heritage Site (WHS) designation on tourism industry growth in developing countries. None of the previous studies concentrated on the global scale efficiency comparison related to WHSs. In this research, by using non-radial super slack-based Malmquist Index (MI) measure, we first investigate the efficie...
Organizations continue to seek innovative ideas for improving their processes and retaining a competitive edge. For achieving this purpose the managers try to contribute various methods and techniques for reducing the cost of products. One of the most effective methods of cost reduction of fixed assets is life cycle costing technique. Life cycle co...
The goal of this project is to propose a comprehensive assessment framework for measuring sustainability level of inland transportation in the regional scale with a special attention paid to social sustainability.
The main goal of this project is to determine the level of sustainability in the cities of Poland, indicating which areas are closer and which farther from reaching the UN sustainable development goal (SDG) 11 in order to provide policy implications for weaker regions. Method: data envelopment analysis (DEA).
