**About me**: : I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at ASSMS, GC University Lahore. From Aug-Sep 2018, I was a guest in Nonlinear Algebra Group at Max-Planck Institute of Mathematics in the Sciences, Leipzig . I completed PhD Mathematics in Aug. 2017 and M. Phil Mathematics in Oct. 2013 from ASSMS under the supervision of Peter Schenzel. During 2014-2016, I was a DAAD Research Fellow at MLU Halle-Wittenberg . Before that I did BS Mathematics from University of the Punjab.

For further information, see my CV.

**Research interests**: I am mainly interested in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry. I am currently investigating properties of secant varieties of Segre-Veronese by using techniques from Algebraic Statistics (Cumulants) and Toric Geometry. Furthermore, I am working in Local Cohomology and Hyperplane Arrangements (around Terao’s conjecture) as well.

**Publications, preprints**:
