Research Interests

My research interests are in mathematical biology, nonlinear partial differential equations, dynamical systems and stochastic processes. Specifically, my research interest in mathematical biology lies in pattern formation, cell polarization, cell motility and synchronization of coupled oscillators. I am also interested in nonlinear waves, spectral analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations, bifurcation analysis of delay differential equations and Brownian motion in confined geometries.

PhD advisor: Prof. Paul Bressloff

Thesis: Mathematical models of cell polarization
