Rana has attended the Bachelor course of Electrical Engineering (Electronic) at the University Bojnord, in Iran. Her bachelor thesis on the topic of “Design and Construction of Electric Board for Controlling Pneumatics Jack” granted her success at the Azad University of Tehran Gharb in the course of Electrical Engineering (Power Electronics), with a Thesis titled: “Design and Construction of a Driver Circuit for Switched Reluctance Motor and also Studying the Sensitivity Analysis in Order to Torque Ripple Reduction”.

Afterwards, she has been working in several well-established companies, dealing with design and construction of electrical machines and automation.
In September 2015 she started her research as an Early Stage Researcher and is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Birmingham, at the Department of Civil Engineering, being involved on the topic on advanced condition monitoring of the electrical drive train in wind turbines. Her research focuses on investigating the effect of atmospheric turbulence on health degradation of electrical components and develop a CM technique based on the intelligent control algorithm.

For her research, she is currently doing condition monitoring on the drive train of wind turbines. Her research interest is in the field of Designing and Construction of Electronic and Power Electronic Boards, Inverters and Switching Converters, Electrical Machine Designing and Driving, Switched Reluctance Motor Drive, Control, intelligent algorithm.
