Hakimeh completed her Master's degree in animal breeding focusing on the estimation of genetic parameters for economic traits and polymorphisms of Prolactin and PEPCK-C genes in native fowl. Following her Master's degree, she continued to work at the hatchery company as a production and statistics expert in Iran, while also working as a researcher at the Animal Science Institute. She completed her PhD at Tarbiat Modares University in Iran, focusing on the “Genetic analysis of feed efficiency in poultry”. During her PhD, she was a visiting student and research assistant at Aarhus University in Denmark. Currently, she is a Postdoctoral Fellow under the supervision of Dr. Christine Baes and Dr. Ben Wood at the University of Guelph, where she is working on random regression ssGBLUP methodology to estimate variance components in a female line of turkeys. Furthermore, her studies involve developing statistical models, gene ontology, pathway analysis and beak shape data analysis in turkeys.
