I am a Chu Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics at Columbia University.

Previously, I was a PhD student at the University of Washington, advised by Randall J. LeVeque and Gunther Uhlmann.

[CV, updated 2018/08/07].

Research Interests

My interests are in the numerical analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs) and inverse problems
