I am an L.E. Dickson Instructor at the University of Chicago. I received my PhD in September 2014 from the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences under the supervision of Fanghua Lin. My detailed CV can be found here (last updated 4/2017).
In Spring 2017 I am teaching Abstract Linear Algebra: Section 34 and Section 54. Information from past courses can be found here.
My research interests lie within analysis and PDE. Specific topics include:
 Regularity theory of nonlocal (including kinetic) equations
 Variational free boundary problems
 Nonlinear wave equations in mathematical physics
Preprints and publications:
 Global a priori estimates for the inhomogeneous Landau equation with moderately soft potentials (with S. Cameron and L. Silvestre) submitted for publication.
 Asymptotic stability for odd perturbations of the the stationary kink in the variablespeed φ^{4} model submitted for publication.
