Mohammad received his B.S. in 2006 from Sharif University of Technology in Tehran, Iran and then moved to Windsor, Canada and joined Chitra Rangan's group. In Windsor, he worked on localized surface plasmons. He received a M.S. in 2008 and moved to Rochester for doctorate work, eventually joining Eberly's group. He and Shantanu have worked on entanglement dynamics beyond rotating wave approximation. Recent work has led to an exciting measure of multipartite entanglement for mixed states of any number of qubits. He is interested in fundamental questions in quantum optics ranging from quantum-classical "boundaries" to weak values to Casimir physics in quantum optics and beyond.
