My name is William, but everyone calls me Trey.  I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Mathematical Sciences at New Jersey Institute of Technology.  The links to the left will direct you to more information about my publications, ongoing research collaborations, and teaching interests.  

I study the effects of time-periodic excitations on fluid interfaces, within which my interests are scientific, mathematical, and technological.  My eye towards technological application is shaped by my education in Chemical Engineering.

I especially appreciate when people reach out.  Contact me!

Current research:

These "collisions" visualize the emergence of oscillatory perturbations to a thin liquid film model.  For more information, see the video description or the project description for "Natural frequencies of thin liquid films."
