I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Georgetown University.

Research

My research interests are in PDE and analysis. Primarily, I work on problems arising from the study of nonlinear waves and fluid dynamics. My current interests include: integrable PDEs; vortex filaments; wave turbulence; degenerate dispersive equations and compactons; surface and internal waves.

About

I live in Washington DC with my wife, daughter, and greyhound. I grew up in London, UK and have been in DC since 2022. I was previously an Assistant Adjunct Professor at the University of California, Los Angeles and a Simons Junior Fellow at the Courant Institute, NYU. I completed my PhD at the University of California, Berkeley, where my advisor was Daniel Tataru, and my undergraduate degree at Magdalen College, Oxford.
