About Me
I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at Seattle University. Prior to joining Seattle University, I was a graduate student at the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington, Seattle. I received my Ph.D. in 2009 in Applied Mathematics under the direction of Bernard Deconinck. I received my B.S. in Systems Science and Engineering (now in the Electrical Engineering department) at Washington University in St. Louis.

My current research interests lie in the broad spectrum of integrable systems, and in particular, nonlinear waves. I am currently focusing on various aspects of solutions to Euler's equations for surface gravity-capillary waves using a nonlocal formulation of the water-wave problem due to Ablowitz, Fokas, and Musslimani. Slides from a recent undergradate talk on the "Pressure Problem" can be found online / pdf slides /. More information regarding my current research can be found on my / research / page. You can also find out more about research being conducted in our Math department, as well as by other researchers outside of our department by attending our weekly / Mathematics Colloquia /.

When I'm not researching, I love to travel. During the last few years, I've traveled through-out Mexico, Central America, Italy, Germany and China. Of course, being a full time instructor means that I don't get to do this as often as I would like. I'm really hoping to travel through-out South America soon.
