I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer in Mathematics. My postdoctoral mentor is Professor Peter Constantin. I completed my Ph.D. in July, 2016 under the supervision of Professor Nicolas Burq at University Paris-Sud. My Ph.D. dissertation was devoted to mathematical analysis for water waves. My CV.


I am a co-organizer of the Analysis of Fluids and Related Topics seminar at Princeton this year.





My research area is Partial Differential Equations. I am currently interested in problems arising in fluid dynamics such as: water waves, the surface quasi-geostrophic equation, drop formation, shallow water waves, compressible Navier-Stokes equations. Below are my publications and preprints.
