About Me 

I am an assistant professor at School of Mathematics, Georgia Tech. I am interested in the mathematical analysis of nonlinear PDEs arising from fluid mechanics and mathematical biology. Here is my CV. Before coming to Atlanta, I was a postdoc at University of Wisconsin, Madison, and my mentors are Alexander Kiselev and Andrej Zlatoš. I got my Ph.D. degree in Jun 2012 from UCLA, under the supervision of Inwon Kim. 
Research 

My research is partially supported by NSF Grants DMS1411857 and DMS1715418.

REU 2013 

During the summer of 2013, I mentored two undergraduate research projects at the Analysis and Differential Equation REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) at UWMadison. One project is on chemotaxis in fluid (led by Alexander Kiselev), and the other one is on magnetocapillary swimming (led by Saverio Spagnolie). Below are the papers resulted from these two projects.
