Mathematical careerEdit

Takloo-Bighash graduated from the Sharif University of Technology, where he enrolled after winning a Silver medal at the 1992 International Mathematical Olympiad. In 2001, Takloo-Bighash graduated under Joseph Shalika from Johns Hopkins University. He spent 2001-2007 at Princeton University, first as an instructor and then as an assistant professor. He is a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.


Takloo-Bighash computed the local factors of spinor L-function attached to generic automorphic forms on the symplectic group GSp(4).[citation needed] He has joint works with Joseph Shalika and Yuri Tschinkel on the distribution of rational points on certain group compactifications.[citation needed] He is a co-author, with Steven J. Miller, of An Invitation To Modern Number Theory (Princeton University Press, 2006).
