Welcome to my homepage.

I am an assistant professor in mathematics in the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Electrical Engineering at Northumbria University, where I am part of the research group on mathematics of complex and nonlinear phenomena. My research interests include, on the mathematical side, nonlinear waves, pattern formation, dynamical systems, statistical physics, and related fields, and on the application side, metamaterials, nonlinear optics, climate dynamics, fluid mechanics, and related fields.

Previously, I held postdoctoral positions at University of Colorado at Boulder, Northwestern University, and University of Chicago, and obtained my PhD in physics at University of California at Berkeley advised by Edgar Knobloch.
