About Me:
WELCOME! I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the UIUC. At Illinois I have worked mostly with Professor Jared Bronski. Previously, 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 in my CV.

Teaching:
This semester (Spring 2016) I am teaching MATH 234 (Business Calculus). Last semester I taught MATH 285 (Elementary ODEs). Prior to that, I taught MATH 489 (Dynamics and Chaos), MATH 442 (Introduction to PDEs) and MATH 444 (Elementary Real Analysis).
Students currently enrolled in MATH 234 and seeking information about the course can log into Blackboard and consult the relevant course material.
