About Me:
WELCOME! I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Colgate University. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at UIUC. At Illinois I worked mostly with Professor Jared Bronski. Prior to that, I was a graduate student in math at Boston University and completed my thesis under the supervision of Professor Samuel Isaacson.
My main research
interest is in Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) and general Applied Mathematics. I am also interested in understanding a lot of things through the lens of PDEs e.g.
geometry, topology etc. Lately, I've been thinking about stochastic reaction diffusion equations, Schrödinger operators, boundary value
problems and microlocal analysis.
You can get more information from my CV.
