I am a Tamarkin Asisstant Professor in the mathematics department at Brown University. 

I completed my PhD in July 2016 at University Paris-Sud XI, Orsay under the supervision of Nicolas Burq. From 2016-2018 I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate and Lecturer in the mathematics department and in PACM at Princeton University where my mentor was Peter Constantin.

Curriculum Vitae


My research area is Analysis of Partial Differential Equations. I am currently interested in problems arising in fluid dynamics such as free-boundary problems (e.g water waves, Muskat, Hele-Shaw), active scalar and active vector equations, lubrication models for the theory of drop formation, and vanishing viscosity limit for Navier-Stokes.

My current research is partially supported by the NSF grant DMS-1907776. My preprints are available at my arXiv page and my Google Scholar page.

      Free-boundary problems in porous media

      Water waves

      Active scalars and active vectors in bounded domains

      Fundamental equations and lubrication models in fluid mechanics
