I am currently an Analysis and PDE RTG Postdoc with the Department of Mathematics. My postdoctoral advisor is Mihaela Ifrim. Previously I was a graduate student in the math department at UC Berkeley, advised by Daniel Tataru.

**Research Interests**

My research interests lie primarily in the fields of nonlinear dispersive partial differential equations, fluid dynamics, and harmonic analysis. One focus of my current research is the question of low regularity well-posedness, which asks to what extent well-posedness holds even when the initial data lies in a very low regularity Sobolev space. My work has involved several models from dispersive PDE and fluids, including the nonlinear wave equation, water waves, the surface quasi-geostrophic (SQG) equation, and the generalized Benjamin-Ono equation.

Here is my CV.
