 Current
research interests
 I make use of tools from
probability theory, the theory of partial
differential equations, and numerical
analysis, to analyze interesting physical
phenomena and to design, analyze, and apply
new computational techniques to study
challenging problems arising in the physical
sciences and engineering. My current
application areas of interest include the
dynamics of crystal surfaces, molecular simulation problems in chemistry
and biochemistry, power systems, extreme
climate and weather events, and
geophysical data assimilation.

 Recent History
 I am currently an
assistant professor and part of the Computational and
Applied Mathematics Initiative
(CAMI) in
the Department
of Statistics at
the The
University of Chicago. I am
also an assistant professor in the James
Franck Institute. Before
joining the Statistics Department I was an
assistant professor in the Department of
Mathematics at the University of
Chicago. Before moving to Chicago I
was a Courant Instructor of mathematics at
NYU and a PhD student in mathematics at
the University of California at Berkeley.


 Applied
Mathematics at the University
of Chicago
 The Computational and
Applied Mathematics Initiative
(CAMI)
launched in 2008 in the Department
of Statistics as an effort to extend the
department's range of research interests
to include computational and applied
mathematics. The Department of Statistics
is now home to a growing faculty in
computational and applied mathematics with
research interests currently spanning
numerical analysis, applied probability,
machine learning, and computational
biology and neuroscience. CAMI is
also complemented by related programs in
the Computer
Science and Mathematics
Departments. Students interested in
conducting research in computational and
applied mathematics with CAMI faculty
should apply to the graduate program in
the Department of Statistics here.
