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 Spring of 2014, I am teaching Math 271 A and Math 271 C.
