**EDUCATION**

Ph.D. in Mathematics, University of North Carolina

Dissertation: “Modeling liquid film flow inside a vertical tube”

Advisers: Prof. Roberto Camassa and Prof. Greg Forest

B.S. in Mathematics and Economics, Duke University

**RESEARCH**

My research interests lie in the area of applied mathematics, primarily in the development and study of mathematical models for nonlinear phenomena in fluid dynamics and atmospheric science. I use a combination of analytical and numerical methods to study both deterministic and stochastic models. I also use a variety of statistical, experimental, and data analysis techniques to compare model results with observations and experiments.
