I earned my PhD under the mentorship of Kevin Zumbrun in 2014 at Indiana University. I completed a NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship at Brown University under the mentorship of Bjorn Sandstede from 2014-2016. I have been an assistant professor of mathematics at Brigham Young University since 2016.
Research InterestsI study stability of traveling waves in a variety of physically motivated systems, such as the Navier-Stokes equations, Magnetohydrodynamics, the shallow water equations, and reactive Navier-Stokes. My research lies at the intersection of numerical analysis, partial differential equations, and dynamical systems. I use rigorous verification to provide computer aided proofs of stability properties.
Teaching InterestsApplied and pure math.
