I grew up in Iran and moved to Canada for the end of high school. I did my undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo and PhD at the University of Chicago with Vladimir Drinfeld. Afterwards, I did postdocs at the University of British Columbia in Vancovuer and the Max Planck Instittue for Mathematics at Bonn. I moved to UQ in 2013 to take up a lectureship.
