I completed my Ph.D. study at Brigham Young University, advised by Kening Lu. I am currently a postdoc in the math department at University of Arizona, mentored by Qiudong Wang. Here is my CV.

I am interested in understanding chaotic behavior of dynamical systems, especially systems from physical models given by (stochastic) differential equations, for example, the
Navier-Stokes equations from fluid mechanics, the N-body problem from celestial mechanics, and dynamical systems on graphs.
