I am a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Mathematics at Emory University. My advisor is John Duncan.

In Fall 2021, I will be a postdoc in the Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University. My postdoc mentor will be Wushi Goldring.

My research involves modular forms, elliptic curves, and moonshine. I am more broadly interested in number theory, algebra, geometry, and mathematical physics.

I have an undergraduate degree in Physics (with a minor in Mathematics) from Lahore University of Management Sciences, in Lahore, Pakistan.

I enjoy teaching and spend a lot of time thinking about effective and inclusive teaching practices. I have earned two teaching fellowships during my time in graduate school. You can find details about the fellowships here.

In Spring 2021, Alexander Clifton and I are organizing a virtual seminar titled "What is... a seminar?" Please see the website for more information, and sign up to give a talk here.

My non-mathematical hobbies include photography and cooking.
