Soodabeh Saeidnia was born in April 1973 in Iran. She received her Pharm.D. (1997) and also Ph.D. of Pharmacognosy from Tehran University of Medical Sciences (TUMS) in 2002. She was Visiting Researcher (2002-2003) at Kyoto University, and was also awarded a Foreign Researcher Fellowship to work as a Research Associate at Kyoto University (2005-2006), as well as Associate Professor at TUMS (2007-2015) and Visiting Professor at Saskatchewan University, Canada (2013-2014). She has written roughly 150 scientific papers for various academic journals, as well as books in both English and Farsi.

She is also interested in literature and poetry, and has published a collection of her poems, Harfhaee- Baraye- Khodam (Words for Myself), in Farsi. Soodabeh immigrated to the US in 2014, and is now living in Kew Gardens, New York. Immigration was a trigger to her poetry and after that her English poems have been published in different American magazines and literary journals including Squawk Back, Sick Lit Magazine, Dying Dahlia Review, Sisyphus Quarterly, Paradox, TimBookTu, Babbling of the Irrational, Scarlet Leaf Review, SPINE, Tuck Magazine, La Libertad, Tiny Poetry, Indiana Voice Journal, The Pen, and 352 degrees. A number of her poems have been printed in the anthologies, The Careless Embrace of the Boneshaker (by Great Weather for Media), Where the Mind Dwells, American Poet, and Moonlight Dreamers of Yellow Haze. The first collection of her contemporary poems Street of the Ginkgo Trees, and also the recently released anthologies Voice of Monarch Butterflies (Middle Eastern Anthology by Ten Poets from Ganges to Nile) and Apple Fruits of an Old Oak are her completed projects in 2016 and now are alive on Amazon. She is currently working on a project of combined (Farsi and English) poetry.

Her micro-poems are daily updating on her Twitter @SSaeidnia. A number of her poems are routinely posted through her weblog and Facebook
