I'm a Ph.D. student in the Department of Mathematics at Purdue University, planning to graduate in May 2016.

   My research interests are in 
applied analysis and nonlinear partial differential equations. Specifically, I study systems of equations that model the dynamical behavior of liquid crystals. My advisor is Professor Daniel Phillips.

   This is my third year organizing Basic Skillsa professional development workshop for math graduate students. I'm also the Advertisement Chair of the Purdue Student Chapter of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). I was a founding member and president for 2 years for the Purdue Student Chapter of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM).  I was also one of the organizers of Junior Analysis Seminar, a common effort between postdocs and students to give lectures related to their research in analysis.
