Research interests

Working on a problem related to the stability of hurricanes...during hurricane Sandy...

My research is currently focused on understanding mixing and nonlinear stability in fluid mechanics at high Reynolds number and kinetic theory in the collisionless limit (with a specific interest in plasma physics). The rest of my work has been devoted the mathematical analysis of PDEs or variational problems arising from solid mechanics or mathematical biology and computational physics.

My research is currently funded by an NSF CAREER grant, Applied Mathematics grant DMS-1462029, and a Sloan Fellowship.

Summer MAPS-REU 2016

As part of the MAPS REU in the mathematics department, I am advising 5 students on projects related to mixing and dissipation in fluid mechanics. The students are working on a variety of analysis and computational PDE projects. The talented students are: We would like to acknowledge the University of Maryland supercomputing resources (http://www.it.umd.edu/hpcc) made available for conducting the research. We are specifically using resources available on the Deepthought2 cluster. I would also like to acknowledge the Sloan foundation for providing some funding related to the research.

Seminars and current topics courses

Teaching

I am now part of the Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Scientific Computation (AMSC) program!
If you are a graduate or undergraduate student interested in finding an REU project or PhD adviser, feel free to contact me and perhaps we can find something. I am open to advising students interested in the analysis of PDE as well as students who may also interested in doing some computation. Likely topics will be focused in some aspect of fluid mechanics or kinetic theory, tailored by the student interests, my interests, and our mutual expertises
