I am a Morrey Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley. I obtained my Ph.D. in Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics from the University of Michigan in 2014. My advisors were Selim Esedoglu and Alfred Hero.

My research involves interactions between partial differential equations (PDE), numerical schemes, applied probability, and computer science. I am interested in both the rigorous analysis of PDE, and the development and implementation of algorithms. It is exciting when mathematical analysis and insights can lead to more efficient algorithms. A continuing theme in my current research is finding continuum limits for discrete combinatorial problems. I am particularly interested when these continuum limits involve solving nonlinear PDEs, and have applications in science and engineering.

I obtained my Master's degree in Mathematics from Queen's University under the supervision of Abdol-Reza Mansouri. I also hold a B.Sc. in Mathematics and Engineering from Queen's University specializing in control and communications. My Erdös number is 4.
