I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Georgia.

I received my PhD in Mathematics in 2014, from Sharif University of Technology; My advisors were Eaman Eftekhary and Alireza Bahraini. Afterwards, I was a Postdoctoral research fellow at Max Planck institute for Mathematics, Bonn from March 2014 till June 2015, and a Ritt Assistant Professor at Columbia University from July 2015 till June 2019.

I am interested in low dimensional topology and knot theory, especially Heegaard Floer homology and Khovanov homology.

My research is partly supported by a topology NSF grant DMS-2000506 (previously DMS-1811210).
