I am a Morrey Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley. I obtained my Ph.D. in Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics from the University of Michigan in 2014. My advisors were Selim Esedoglu and Alfred Hero.

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.
