I am a third year graduate student in mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
I like thinking about homotopy theory, in particular if it relates to some logic and category theory,
but I also like teaching and working with students.
I was an undergrad at
Shiraz University and
master student at the University of Western Ontario also learning math.
I am currently working with my advisor
Charles Rezk and Matt Ando
to figure out a theory of (elementary) higher topoi.
