Narges is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Business and Administration Department at the University of Winnipeg.  She works under the supervision of Professor Farzad Zaerpour and she supports the research functions of advanced mathematical projects, in collaboration with the principal investigator. In 2019 she did a postdoc at the York University worked on developing the data envelopment analysis algorithms, theoretical analysis and applications. Before that, she taught for the Management and Accounting, and Mathematical Sciences departments of the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the Islamic Azad University and Shahid Beheshti University. In 2017 she worked as a visiting researcher for a performance analysis research group at the University of Seville, Spain.
