- MATH 439
Research Interest(s):
partial differential equations, applied mathematics
My Spring Office Hours are Tuesday 1:30- 2:30, Thursday 10:30-11:30 or by appointment.
I teach MA 44200H Honors Real Analysis II and MA 26600-402 Ordinary Differential Equations during Spring 2020. Their course pages are available on Brightspace .
My research concerns partial differential equations motivated from problems in materials science and
condensed matter physics, in particular applications to liquid crystals, polymers, composites, and superconductors.
Currently I am working on analyzing mathematical models for nematic and smectic liquid crystals.
