I’m a third year PhD student in Computer Science at UC San Diego under supervision of Shachar Lovett. I did my BSc in Mathematics and Computer Science at Sharif University of Technology, Iran.

I’m interested in additive combinatorics and its applications in theoretical computer science. Usually the problems I work on happen to revolve around pseudorandomness.
