I am a postdoctoral researcher in mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU and a junior fellow in the Simons Society of Fellows. My faculty mentor at Courant is Jalal Shatah.

I completed my PhD in 2015 at the University of California, Berkeley under the supervision of Daniel Tataru.

## Research

My research interests are in PDE and analysis, in particular the local and global dynamics of solutions to nonlinear dispersive PDE.

Nonlinear dispersive PDE arise in a variety of physical contexts such as water waves, plasma physics and general relativity. These time-dependent equations are characterized by the property that waves with different frequencies travel at different (group) velocities, causing solutions to spread out or *disperse*.
