I am an associate professor in the math department at Texas A&M University. Before coming here I was a Boas Assistant Professor at Northwestern University. I received my Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2010. I was a student of Rafe Mazzeo and András Vasy. I am supported by NSF CAREER grant DMS-1654056.
My research is in partial differential equations generally and in geometric microlocal analysis more specifically. I am particularly interested in the study of wave-like equations on singular backgrounds.
If you are a student interested in working with me, you should take the real analysis qualifying exam (the complex analysis qualifying exam is OK, too, but the real analysis exam is preferable). For the other qualifier, you should likely take the geometry/topology exam, as much of the analysis I do takes place on manifolds.
I am on faculty development leave for AY 2020–2021 and so am not currently teaching. I am still (virtually) organizing the graduate student writing groups, so please contact me if you would like to join them.
In the past I have taught the following courses at Texas A&M:
I am an occasional organizer and regular participant in the following two seminars at Texas A&M:
I was also an organizer of the following conferences/workshops:
