Welcome to my home page. I am now an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and an affiliated faculty member of the Applied Mathematics and Computational Science graduate program at the University of Pennsylvania.

My research focuses on the analysis of non-linear partial differential equations which arise in physical contexts. I have particular interests in the equations of gas dynamics and fluid flow, such as the Boltzmann equation and the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. Recently, I've also been working on Free boundary problems and Harmonic analysis.





I would like to gratefully acknowledge current and past support from the National Science Foundation (DMS-1200747, DMS-0901463, DMS-0602513) and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Congressman Jerry McNerney gave a one-minute speech in the House which describes our NSF-funded research on the Boltzmann equation.
