Research:

I am instructor of Mathematics at the University of Utah. Last year, I graduated with PhD in mathematics under the supervision of Professor Tommaso de Fernex. My research lied in-between of max-plus algebra, topology, and Berkovich spaces; more specifically, I used techniques from birational geometry and cubical hyperresolutions to study the homotopy type of Berkovich spaces over trivially valued fields. Here is my Research Statement from last year.

Before joining the University of Utah, I received my M.Sc. in Mathematics from Sharif University of Technology and got some taste of number theory, tropical geometry, and central simple algebra.

Currently I work on my "Edge Detection" project by combining fuzzy inference system with neural network to make an efficient edge detection algorithm. In the past, I did some basic projects about Motion Detection, Colorization, and Facial Outline.
