## Overview

Artan Sheshmani is an Associate Professor of Pure Mahematics, specialized in Algebraic Geometry. He currently works at the Center for Mathematical Sciences and Applications at Harvard University and he further holds joint affiliation with the European Center for Quantum Geometry of Moduli spaces (QGM). His research is focused on Gromov Witten theory, Donaldson Thomas theory, Calabi-Yau geometries, and mathematical aspects of String theory. Artan mainly makes use of Algebraic Geometry techniques in his research, some of these are: Intersection theory and Derived Category theory. However, Representaion theory, Topology, Differential Geometry and Number Theory might also be employed to carry out the relevant computations in problems he is interested in. Artan recieved his PhD and Master's degrees in pure mathematics under Sheldon Katz and Thomas Nevins from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (USA) in 2011 and 2008 respectively. He recieved his undergraduate degree from Sharif University of Technology in 2003 with a double major in Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering. Before that he recieved a diploma in Mathematics and Physics from Iran's National Organization of development of exceptional talents (NODET) in 1999.
