I am an Assistant Professor in applied mathematics at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I received my Ph.D. from UCLA under the guidance of Andrea Bertozzi. I was an NSF postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University from 2011-2014. My research focuses on nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs), in particular those with applications to urban crime, segregation, biological aggregation, chemotaxis, and ecology. Fundamentally, I am interested in the mathematical modeling and the use of numerical and mathematical analysis to shed light into social, biological and ecological systems. I have contributed to the advancement of the theory for non-local PDEs and have brought insight into crime propagation and prevention, social segregation, and pest-control. I love biking, hiking, skiing, and anything that allows me to be outside. You can find a list of my publication, teaching, and service in my CV.
