Welcome


I am a second year Dunham Jackson Assistant Professor at the University of Minnesota in the School of Mathematics mentored by Arnd Scheel . I completed my PhD in Mathematics with some applications in theoretical neuroscience at the NeuroMathComp project team part of Inria Sophia Antipolis, University of Nice and ENS Paris .
The scientific fields I am interested in are:
- Dynamics of Nonlocal Evolution Equations
- Pattern formation
- Nonlinear waves
- Mathematical Neuroscience
