I am a fourth-year graduate student in the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University, working with Professor Chi-Wang Shu.

My current research focuses on numerical solutions of partial differential equations. Topics of special interests include:

- Discontinuous Galerkin methods.
- Time discretization for numerical PDEs.
- Numerical methods for non-local problems.
