Nahid Walji

Assistant Professor

See Courses >>

Professor Walji obtained his PhD in Pure Mathematics at the California Institute of Technology. He has held post-doctoral positions at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and UC Berkeley, as well as visiting positions at the Humboldt-Universität in Berlin, ETH Zürich, the Université de Montréal, and, most recently, at Occidental College in Los Angeles. He also received a Forschungskredit grant in 2015-16 to work on L-functions at Universität Zürich.

Professor Walji's research interests lie in number theory, specifically the study of elliptic curves, modular forms, and automorphic representations, often through the perspective of L-functions. He has worked on questions relating to the Lang-Trotter conjecture, the distribution of Satake parameters, and refinements of strong multiplicity one for automorphic representations. He joined The American University of Paris in 2017.
