# Asif Zaman

Mathematics
I am a NSERC Postdoctoral Scholar at Stanford University working with Kannan Soundararajan. I was previously a student of John Friedlander at the University of Toronto. My research is rooted in analytic number theory and its connections to algebraic structures, especially problems concerning the distribution of prime numbers, L-functions, elliptic curves, modular forms, arithmetic statistics, and multiplicative function theory.
