I am an applied mathematician, who uses and develops tools
to address problems in science and engineering.
My mathematical work draws on many areas of pure and applied mathematics, but
areas of particular interest include stochastic analysis, computational statistical mechanics, multiscale methods,
computational geometry, and rigidity theory.
My scientific work addresses problems in a variety of physical and biological systems, including materials science, softmatter physics, fluid dynamics, and ecology.
