Welcome to my homepage!


I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Kansas.


Prior to my arrival at Kansas, I held visiting appointments at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (2016-17, working with Panayotis Kevrekidis), the State University of New York at Buffalo (2014-16, working with Gino Biondini), and the University of Notre Dame (2012-14, under the mentorship of Alex Himonas).


I completed my Ph.D. in 2012 in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge, under the supervision of Thanasis Fokas.


My research interests lie in the field of Partial Differential Equations. The way Mathematics shapes our world is a great source of excitement and inspiration for me, hence I am especially attracted by problems that bring together rigorous PDE theory and applications in areas such as fluid dynamics (water waves), biology (tumor growth), and economics (optimal asset pricing). More on my research can be found here.


I am also enthusiastic about teaching and very much enjoy mentoring students of various academic backgrounds. More information about my teaching is available here.
