I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 2014, and I am currently an assistant professor at the University of Oklahoma. My research interest lies in the analysis of PDE, using methods of harmonic analysis, calculus of variations and bifurcation theory. I have been studying rotating star solutions of the Euler-Poisson equations, the Vlasov-Poisson equations, and the inverse scattering theory of the Benjamin-Ono equation.

Projects in Progress

I am working with Juhi Jang and Walter Strauss on equations of magentic rotating stars, and global continuation of steady rotating star solutions. A different project of my own aims at constructing rotating star solutions to the Einstein equations of general relativity. I am also working on the inverse scattering problem for the completely integrable Benjamin-Ono equation. Together with Peter Perry and Joel Klipfel, we are studying the inverse scattering transform for the Intermediately Long Wave equation.

Curriculum Vitae

My CV is here.

Paper Preprints


In Fall 2018, I am teaching Math 2433 (Calculus and Analytic Geometry III).

In the past, I have taught different courses at Brown University, Indiana University and the University of Michigan. Courses include: precalculus, calculus (I, II, III), intro to ordinary differential equations, intro to partial differential equations, functional analysis, intro to probability and statistics, intro to stochastic processes, etc.
