I am hosting a summer school in analysis/general relativity/wave equations/PDE in June 2018:

Analysis/PDE Seminar

My research focuses on the analysis of partial differential equations that are used to model physical phenomena. I am particularly interested in Einstein's equations, fluid mechanics, kinetic theory, and nonlinear electromagnetism.

My work integrates techniques from analysis, geometry, and partial differential equations.

Recently I have been studying stable singularity formation. Examples include the formation of shocks in solutions to the compressible Euler equations with vorticity and the formation of Big Bang singularities in solutions to the Einstein equations.
