Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Mathematics, University of Maryland.

Research Interests

Analysis and numerical methods for nonlinear partial differential equations.
I am currently working on the project Convergent numerical methods for nonlinear partial differential equations with applications in complex fluids and tumor modeling funded by the Norwegian research council and Marie Curie Actions.
