Research Interests

At Brown, my research was in the analysis and numerical analysis of stochastic PDEs driven by spatial white noise. I studied the existence of solutions of SPDE as generalized random elements using techniques from the Malliavin calculus and Wiener Chaos expansion. In particular, I looked at parabolic SPDEs and the stochastic Navier-Stokes equations modeled using the Malliavin calculus or the Wick product, as well as the numerical error analysis for solving SPDE using the Wiener chaos expansion.
Before coming to Brown, I spent a year at the Bioinformatics Institute in Singapore, where I studied the modeling of p53 tumor suppressor reaction pathways as well as modifications of Gillespie's Stochastic Simulation Algorithm for simulating enzymatic reactions catalyzed by a single enzyme whose reaction rate constant varies randomly in time.

Teaching Experience

In Fall 2010, I taught an upper level course AM1210 Operations Research: Deterministic Methods in the Fall of 2010. I will be co-teaching this course with my fellow graduate student Kenny Chowdhary.
