Sam Nariman to join Faculty in Fall 2020


Professor Nariman received his Bachelor and Master degree in Iran at Sharif University in 2009. He received his PhD at Stanford University under the supervision of Prof. Søren Galatius in 2015.

Professor Nariman was a postdoc at the University of Münster, at Michael Weiss’ group, for one year and then was a Boas assistant professor at Northwestern University from 2016-2019.  He spent the academic year 2019-2020 at the University of Copenhagen before joining Purdue University.

Professor Nariman’s research interests, in general, include applications of homotopy theory in studying moduli space of geometric structures on manifolds and in particular flat manifold bundles, stable homology of moduli spaces, automorphism groups of manifolds. And recently has dabbled in symmetries of three-manifolds.
