I completed my PhD in July 2019 under the supervision of Prof. Mircea Grigoriu. My special committee included Prof. Christopher Earls and Prof. Timothy Healey.

I was also mentored by Dr. Kevin Carlberg, Prof. Elena Akhmatskaya, and Dr. Tijana Radivojevic during my graduate studies.

For my postdoc, I will be working with Prof. Benjamin Peherstorfer at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences.
