I am a graduate student at math department of Georgi Tech. My area of study is analytic number theory, in particular partitions, zeroes of Riemann zeta functions, and smooth numbers. My advisor is Ernie Croot. Before I come here, I was an M.Sc student at Sabanci university. You can see my CV here. If you would like to know further about my work then feel free to email me.

I am interested in analytic number theory. In particular, I am studying zeroes of Riemann zeta function, its relation with Randome matrices. I also investigate distribution of primes, like prime gaps, smooth numbers, etc. One of the main tool that has been involved in my research is theory of partitions. I used to do research in algebraic coding theory, cryptography, and wireless sensor networks. Here is my Google scolar profile.

I am a huge fan of reading manga. My top 6 list is

wuxia series

I love the wuxia stories by Jin Yong. My favorite versions are Demigod-semievil (2009), Legend of Condor Heores (2001), Return of Condor heores (2006), heavenly sword dragon sabor (2019).


I cannot put all my favorite ones in this tiny place! So I put a few nice pieces. Enjoy!

  • Bebar ey baroon bebar
  • Aint no sunshine
  • Z
  • Spanish train
  • Flower of Carnage
  • Football

    I love Iran national team. I am a fan of Arsenal club since 2001. My favorite player is Tiery Henry. What I hate the most in footbal is injection of money without control. I hate and respect Mancehster United, but I do not have any respect for Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, Chelsea, etc.
