I am an L.E. Dickson RTG Instructor in the mathematics department at the University of Chicago. My faculty mentor is Takis Souganidis. I received my PhD in 2015 from Princeton University under the supervision of Peter Constantin. For a detailed CV, click here.
My research interests lie within analysis and PDE. Specific topics include:
