About

I am a postdoctoral researcher in Mathematics at Techniche Universität Berlin, geometry research group. I received my PhD in Applied and Computational Mathematics at California Institute of Technology advised by Professor Peter Schröder.

My teaching and research interest lies in an intersection between computational mathematics, differential geometry, discrete differential geometry, partial differential equations and computer graphics. One of my recent research focuses is on Fluid Dynamics and its simulation using its Quantum Mechanical analog.

Besides academic interests, I am also an amateur drawing artist and classical pianist.
