I am a Ritt Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Columbia; research in low dimensional topology.

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

I am interested in low dimensional topology, knot theory and contact and symplectic geometry.

My research is partly supported by a topology NSF grant DMS-1811210.
