I am back from my sabbatical. Thanks to the Simons Foundation for their generous support through a Simons Fellowship.

I was interviewed by the nice people at BigPictureScience back in March. Here is a link to my short interview.

Here is a link to the video recording of my Everything is Math public lecture.

New: I have some grant money to support a grad student. If you are interested in Applied PDE, Pattern formation or Math in Materials Science, send me an email and we can talk.

If you are an undergrad/grad/postdoc (or thinking about possibly becoming one) and interested in working with me, please read this first.
