Dr. Dehzooei Joined Bloomsburg University in Fall 2017. Before that he worked at Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard Kennedy School of Government. His area of interest includes Development Economics, Labor Economics, and Industrial Organizations. Dr. Dehzooei's research has focused on the effectiveness of poverty alleviation policies. In his research, he has studied how transfer payments to agricultural sector and unconditional cash transfers contribute to poverty reduction. His research finds that while cash transfers reduce poverty, it may not negatively affect employment of the poor. He has also studied the impacts of paid family leave laws in US on women's employment outcomes and found that these entitlements have increased wages for women. Based on his academic research, Dr. Dehzooei has provided consulting services to the World Bank in the past years.

Dr. Dehzooei received his PhD in 2016 from Virginia Tech. He holds a masters degree in economics and a bachelors degree in electrical engineering from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran.
