I am a second year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics of the University of British Columbia . I am interested in Algebraic Geometry and work under supervision of Prof. K. Behrend. More specifically, I am interested in the algebro-geometric nature of moduli stacks that are envisaged to appear naturally in the framework of String Theory. Please visit here for some technical and non-technical material related to my research.
Before moving to Vancouver, I was a graduate fellow of the University of Pennsylvania (Philadelphia, PA). This transfer has contributed in, me being trained more as an algebraist rather than a geometer. Prior to my graduate studies, I double majored in Computer Science and Mathematics in Sharif University of Technology, and still to date I am passionate about research trends in computability and computational complexity.
