Thats Me

I graduated from The University of Delaware with a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics under the advisement of Fioralba Cakoni in August 2015. I am currently at Texas A&M University where I am a Visiting Assistant Professor continuing my research in Inverse Problems and Scattering Theory with my mentor Bill Rundell. Here are links to my CV and Google Scholar page.

Some Updates:



My research interests are in direct and inverse problems for PDEs, especially those arising in acoustic and electromagnetic scattering. I have been working on the inverse scattering problem of non-destructive testing for defects in complex media and parameter identification for periodic media. My research employs techniques from a multitude of areas in mathematical analysis, such as: Functional analysis, Analysis of PDEs, Numerical and Asymptotic methods.
