"Examination of Alimohammadi's publication record reveals that he was not an applied nuclear physicist as the Iranian state media had claimed, but a mathematical physicist working in quantum mechanics and field theory. He had published more than 50 papers and had recently specialized in theories of dark energy. His last paper was entitled "Remarks on generalized Gauss-Bonnet dark energy", which appeared in Physical Review D last March (Phys. Rev. D 79 063006)."
