About me

Photo taken in NYC, NY

I am a postdoctoral research fellow on Wushi Goldring's team in the Department of Mathematics at Stockholm University. My current research involves moonshine, representation theory, and related aspects of number theory.

  • 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.

  • I taught "Representation Theory for Finite Groups" in Spring 2022 at Stockholm University. See the "Teaching" tab for more details.

  • Since Spring 2021, I have been co-organizing a virtual seminar titled "What is... a seminar?" with Alexander Clifton. Please see the seminar website for more information, and sign up to give a talk here.

  • My non-mathematical hobbies include photography and cooking.
