## About Me

I am an Applied Mathematician working as a Research Associate in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. I specialize in the application of applied mathematical techniques, particularly asymptotic, numerical, and complex analyses, to physically-inspired problems. My research interests cover a wide range of physical mathematics, including fluid dynamics, solid mechanics, and mathematical biology. More generally, I am fascinated by the mathematics behind observable phenomena, both small day-to-day principles and large-scale challenges for which a mathematical approach is needed. My current postdoctoral research concerns the interaction of anisotropic fluids with soft matter, which I am working on with Prof. Saverio Spagnolie.

Before joining UW–Madison, I did my undergraduate degree (MMath) and DPhil in the Oxford Centre of Industrial and Applied Mathematics in the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford. For my PhD, I researched the mechanics of thin elastic materials and their interaction with soft matter, under the supervision of Prof. Dominic Vella. In particular, I considered three projects: the indentation of suspended elastic sheets, the deformation of thin elastic foundations, and the morpho-mechanics of pressurized cellular structures. Further information on my work can be found here.

I will not be teaching during the Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 semesters. My previous teaching resources are available here.
