I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics at the University of Michigan. My advisor is Selim Esedoglu and my co-advisor is Alfred Hero. Starting in July, 2014 I will be a Morrey Assistant Professor at UC Berkeley.

My primary research interests are the analysis of partial differential equations and mathematical problems in computer vision and image processing. I have, in particular, worked on viscosity solutions and numerical schemes for Hamilton-Jacobi equations, and problems that have an intersection with applied probability. I am also interested in exploring how mathematical analysis of problems can lead to efficient algorithms. Click here for my research statement.

I obtained my Master's degree in Mathematics from Queen's University under the supervision of Abdol-Reza Mansouri, where I developed Sobolev gradient flow techniques for image diffusion and sharpening. I also hold a B.Sc. in Mathematics and Engineering from Queen's University specializing in control and communications. My Erdös number is 4.
