**I have joined the Department of Statistics at London School of Economics as an Assistant Professor. Find my new page here!**

I am a postdoc at the Seminar for Statistics at ETH Zürich, mentored by Prof. Peter Bühlmann. I am broadly interested in problems in high-dimensional statistics, non-parametric estimation, and working on new methodologies for understanding the dependency structure in the data, and the application in causal inference.

I completed my PhD in Statistics in 2020 at Stanford University, where I was fortunate to be supervised by Prof. Sourav Chatterjee.

Prior to Stanford, I did my undergraduate studies in Mathematics at Sharif University of Technology, where I did my Masters in Mathematics with more focus on probability theory, advised by Kasra Alishahi and Mir Omid Haji Mirsadeghi.

I enjoy playing Dutar and this is one of my favorite peices.

Living in beautiful California during my Ph.D., I was fortunate to pick up road cycling as a hobby, and Stanford Cycling Club made it safer and more joyful for me.
