Most of my current research involves problems in geometric analysis which involve addressing geometric questions by means of studying an associated partial differential equation. The specific things I spend most of my time thinking about include geometric PDE and mathematical relativity. I am also interested in applications of (partial) differential equations in a variety of fields, including physics, life-sciences, and economics/finance.

When not thinking about mathematics, I enjoy being outside – hiking, skiing, gardening, etc.
