## Hamed Hatami

I'm an assistant professor at the School of computer science and an associate professor at the department of Mathematics and Statistics at * McGill University*.

I recieved my PhD from the department of Computer Science, * University of Toronto * under the supervision of Professors Michael Molloy and Balazs Szegedy. Before joining McGill, I spent a year as a Veblen fellow at the department of Mathematics, * Princeton University*.

## Research Interests

- Analytic methods in Combinatorics and Theoretical Computer Science
- Limits of graph sequences
- Analysis of Boolean functions
- Additive Combinatorics
