I am an interdisciplinary mathematician whose work is focused on applying mathematical theory to a wide range of applied problems. I serve as a Director of the Industrial Immersion program (http://math.gmu.edu/iip.php) and a Director of Graduate Studies for the Mathematics department.
My work lies at the interface between mathematics and other areas of science and engineering, such as materials science, chemistry and biology. I develop new predictive models and simulations for smart materials design and design fast data analysis algorithms in collaboration with interdisciplinary colleagues. My research is problem driven and utilizes a wide spectrum of mathematical tools from optimization, numerical analysis, stochastic processes, PDEs and statistics.
I teach a variety of courses ranging from undergraduate differential equations to advanced graduate courses on numerical analysis, linear algebra, data science and ODE.
