Here is my cv.

Research Interests
I am interested in the study of nonlinear dispersive equations, particularly in using probabilistic techniques to study the behaviour of dispersive and Hamiltonian PDEs. My research is supported by the National Science Foundation grant DMS-1800697.

PhD in Mathematics 2010-2015, MIT. Advisor: Gigliola Staffilani.
