Azadeh also holds an LLB (with high honours) from Shahid Beheshti University (National University of Iran) and LLM (with high honours) from University of Tehran. She was awarded three research scholarships from UCL Graduate School and UCL Faculty of Laws.

Azadeh's teaching interests are in the areas of Human Rights, Law and Development, Law and Gender, Public International Law, Humanitarian Law, Comparative Law, Sociology of Law, Jurisprudence and Empirical Research Methods (qualitative and quantitative). Before joining Ulster, Azadeh was a guest lecturer in International Human Rights Law, Women's Rights, Comparative Human Rights Law and Human Rights and Criminal Law at UCL Faculty of Laws.

Azadeh's research generally focuses on the gap between human rights theory and human rights practice. She is currently working on different types of national action plans for implementing human rights from theoretical, doctrinal and empirical perspectives, global networked governance for implementing human rights, and on the social ontological status of human rights from a critical realist perspective. All her work is published in peer reviewed journals and the majority appears in the leading journals in the area, including the European Human Rights Law Review, the International Journal of Human Rights, the Journal of Development in Practice, Human Rights Review and the Oxford Journal of Human Rights Practice.

Azadeh has also had various experiences in protecting human rights in the field. She has acted as human rights trainer and human rights advisor for different human rights NGOs.
