I am an instructor in Applied Math at MIT working on the Physical Applied Mathematics group.  I received a B.Sc. wPersonal photoith highest honors in mathematics from Texas A&M in 2010, and a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from KAUST in 2014.

My research interests lie somewhere between mathematics and physics. I enjoy mathematics by itself,  but I get most excited when I am able to use mathematical tools to better understand real-world phenomena. Much of my research consists in applying asymptotic techniques and numerical approximations to model complex phenomena. You can read more about my research here.

On my ever contracting spare time, I enjoy to hike, play volleyball, and travel. I was also once an avid chess player.
