# About me

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Toronto. My research involves moonshine, representation theory, and related aspects of number theory. In the 2023-2024 academic year, I will teach MAT237 and MAT133 at UofT.

I obtained my Ph.D. in 2021 from the Department of Mathematics at Emory University under the supervision of John Duncan.

The focus of my current research is on representation theory, 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 earned two teaching fellowships and a teaching award during my time in graduate school. You can find details about the fellowships and awards here.

My non-mathematical hobbies include photography and cooking.
