### About me

I am a graduate of the
the UCLA Ph.D. program in pure math. Currently I am a PIC Adjunct Professor at UCLA. My research is in
the intersection of many interesting areas
of mathematics and includes Lie Algebras, representation theory, harmonic analysis, linear algebraic groups and p-adic physics. However, my personal mathematical interests are even more varied as I enjoy complex analysis, algebraic geometry, number theory and super symmetry just to name a few.

I have been teaching at UCLA for 6 years and in Spring 2016 I was
awarded the departmental teaching award.
