Born: 1974

Interests: Applied mathematics, nonlinear partial differential equations

Details:
The focus of my thesis research at Caltech was on using variational approaches to address various theoretical and computational issues in nonsmooth classical and continuum mechanics.

More recently, I started to work in the general area of nonlinear partial differential equations, with particular interests in multiscale modeling, analysis and simulation of fluid equations. I did some work on Lagrangian-averaged fluid models, particle methods for oscillatory solutions of semilinear hyperbolic systems, Leray-type shock regularizations of the Burgers and compressible Euler equations. Very recently I took an interest in wave propagation phenomena in the atmosphere.

Selected publications:
