Research Interests
  • My research is in Applied Analysis, including but not limited to:
  • Analysis of Partial Differential Equations
  • Calculus of Variations (Optimization)
  • Homogenization of PDEs, Systems of PDEs and Integrals, Asymptotic (multiscale) Analysis
  • Geometric and Analytic Inequlities
  • Continuum Mechanics (Elasticity)
  • Composite Materials, Metamaterials
  • Micromagnetics

  • I am a research assistant professor working with distinguished professor Graeme W. Milton . I obtained my Ph.D. in applied mathematics in June 2012 from the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (University of Bonn, Germany) under the supervision of professor Stefan Mueller .
