I completed my Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University in 2013, under the supervision of Prof. Joel Spruck. Right now, I'm a Hill Assistant Professor at Rutgers University. In Fall 2013, I was at MSRI, for the program in Optimal Transport: Geometry and Dynamics. After that, I spent a semester at Cornell University.

I am interested in partial differential equation, geometric analysis, and geometric measure theorem.
