I’m Amin Moradi. I’m from Iran. When I was a child, everyone dreamed of being a pilot or a doctor, whereas I wanted to be a mathematician. Since my childhood, I always was fascinated by how even a sign would change real practical applications and they perform completely different. I loved math, and I was good at math. In fact, I was so good that it led me to the best university in Iran, University of Tehran. In Konkoor (universities’ entrance exam), I was placed in the top 0.03% (163rd among 480,000 students).
In the BSc, I was lost, disappointed, and struggling since I couldn’t find my beloved math play a vital role among electrical circuits and transistors. However, the tides turned when I passed “Linear Systems Control” course. I felt like i’m back in the game again. I felt that little signs changes everything again. In control systems, I found math alive, again.

Now I’m a second year MSc student in Iran University of Science and Technology, one of the top 3 in Iran. I have passed all my required courses with great scores (GPA 4.0/4.0), I have taken the TOEFL exam (102 score), I have registered for the GRE exam and I’m doing research about my main interest “Reinforcement Learning in Control Systems”. My goal is to study PhD in my field of interest in the US or Canada in Fall 2020.
