 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
associate professor in the Department
of Statistics at
the The
University of Chicago and part of the Committee
in Computational and Applied
Mathematics (CCAM). I am also an associate
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 University of Chicago
has recently approved a new
degreegranting Ph.D. program in
Computational and Applied
Mathematics. This program will be
jointly adminstered by faculty in a number
of departments (Statistics, Mathematics,
Computer Science, and others) in a formal
framework called the Committee
on Computational and Applied Mathematics
(CCAM). Information about the
Ph.D. program can be found here.
