Short description of research area: My main research interests are in the areas of number theory, analysis and special functions. Most of my research is centered around special values of L-functions and multiple zeta functions which play an important role at the interface of analysis, number theory, geometry and physics with applications ranging from periods of mixed Tate motives to evaluating Feynman integrals in quantum field theory. In my research, I employ methods from real & complex analysis and special functions. My future research directions include obtaining evaluations of Hoffman families of multiple zeta values and their L-values extensions. Moreover, I am also interested in connections with modular forms, special functions in p-adic setting, Mahler measure of multivariable polynomials and Chern-Simmons theory of knot invariants.

 

Short Self description: I obtained a PhD degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2018 with a thesis on special values of Riemann zeta and multiple zeta functions. Between 2018-2021 I was a postdoctoral scholar at Texas Tech University. Aside from research, I taught numerous courses at Pitt and TTU both undergraduate and graduate ranging from calculus and linear algebra to abstract algebra and real analysis. Also, I coached the best undergraduate students for the William Lowell Putnam Mathematical Competition.
