Research Interests: 

My overall research interest lies in applied mathematics. I enjoy studying models of physical phenomena in any field, exploring the mathematical intricacies, and then computing the numerical solutions in the hopes of contributing to a real-life situation.

To sum up my research philosophy and goals in three words:
Modeling, Theory, Applications.
