Areas
of expertise:
Mathematical modeling, asymptotic
and numerical analysis of differential equations, hydrodynamic stability,
perturbation theory, biomedical mathematics.
Applications:
Shallowwater waves,
human brain modeling, ocean and sea ice study.
Teaching:
I
generally teach both undergraduate and graduate courses, including courses for
calculus sequences, numerical analysis, and ordinary and partial differential
equations. Currently, in the Fall of 2016, I am teaching Math 20 D and Math
