Arash Ghaani Farashahi

Welcome to my scientific research webpage!

I am Arash, a Persian research scientist in the field of mathematics and computational science, born in 1985 in Mashhad, Iran. My research interests and experiences consist of a wide range between pure mathematics (Representation Theory & Abstract Harmonic Analysis & Operator Theory), applied mathematics (Constructive Approximation & Mathematical Physics), mathematical modeling, and computational science. As a personal rule, I am always looking for new challenges and adventures in science. I did my PhD in pure mathematics (Classical Mathematical Analysis) at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad (FUM) in Iran (where I had also obtained my BSc and MSc in pure mathematics), on abstract non-commutative harmonic analysis methods in coherent state/covariant transforms.

I am currently a postdoctoral research scholar in the laboratory Robot and Protein Kinematics (RPK) at Department of Mechanical Engineering (Whiting School of Engineering) in Johns Hopkins University (JHU), working on non-commutative harmonic analysis and representation theory methods in computational science and their applications in Mathematical Crystallography, Robotics, and Biophysic (Protein Kinematics and Protein Folding).

Active Research Interests and Research Experiences

Recently I also got interested in certain aspects of Theoretical Computer Science.
