A Brief Bio

I am  currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at Colgate University.  I was a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at Worcester Polytechnic Institute from 2010 to 2013.  I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics at Louisiana State University on August 6th 2010, with Robert Lipton as my PhD adviser.  

I received my Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Universidad de Costa Rica in 2002 and my Master's degree in Mathematics from Louisiana State University in 2006. 

My current research centers on Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations, Homogenization Theory, Mathematical Material Sciences, and Multiscale Analysis.

"Mathematics is not a deductive science, that's a cliche.  When you try to prove a theorem, you don't just list the hypotheses, and then start to reason. What you do is trial and error, experimentation, guesswork."
