Pooya Vahidi Ferdowsi


I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the department of mathematics at Caltech. I'm being advised by Omer Tamuz.
My research in the math department is mostly focused on Topological Dynamics, Amenability, and Ergodic Theory. I'm also interested in Machine Learning, especially Unsupervised Learning, Probability Theory, and Combinatorics.

Before I start my Ph.D. in 2014, I received a Master of mathematics from University of Cambridge. In Cambridge, my studies were mostly concenterated in Probability Theory. Before I attend Cambridge, I got my B.Sc. in pure mathematics from Ferdowsi University of Mashhad.
In Summer 2016 I did an internship as a Software Engineer at Google. My work in Google was mostly related to Ensemble Learning.
In Summer 2017 I did a Quantitative Research internship at Jump Trading LLC.

You can find my CV here.
My office is 308 Linde Hall at Caltech. Please feel free to visit me or to send me an email.

My main hobby is photography. I'm interested in street photography and portraits. I sometimes post my photos on Instagram. Feel free to take a look at my photos on my Instagram page.
