Shaghayegh, my first name, means red poppy in Persian. Here in the US, I go with 'Shay' as a nickname since Shaghayegh might be hard to pronounce! I graduated with a bachelor's degree in mathematics from Sharif University of Technology, focusing on pure mathematics. As of September 2021, I'll be a mathematics graduate student at Stanford University.
