Assistant Professor, Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH), Department of Mathematics

PhD, University of Pennsylvania, Department of Mathematics, 2016

BA, Columbia University, Department of Mathematics, 2011

Welcome to my homepage! I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the esteemed Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) in Pohang, South Korea. I have earned my PhD in Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania and a BA in Mathematics from Columbia University.

My research focuses on the mathematical analysis of partial differential equations (PDEs) that arise from various physical phenomena. Within the field of kinetic theory, my work contributes to the understanding of numerous PDEs. My research interests include deriving PDEs through diverse scaling limits, examining local and global existence, uniqueness, regularity, and exploring the large-time asymptotic behavior of solutions. 

I am particularly interested in studying physically motivated kinetic partial differential equations, such as the Boltzmann and Landau equations under Newtonian mechanics or special relativity, the Vlasov-Maxwell equations, the kinetic equations for the dynamics of semiflexible polymers, and the kinetic equations for radiative transfer. Furthermore, I am intrigued by the hydrodynamic limits of these kinetic equations, leading to several macroscopic fluid equations through different scaling limits. The study of kinetic equations is connected to classical mechanics, which involves a multitude of interacting particles whose dynamics can be further examined from a statistical perspective.

For a comprehensive overview of my research and publications, please feel free to visit my ORCiD, MathSciNet, Google Scholar, and ResearchGate profiles.

At present, I am co-organizing the PDE and Applied Analysis Seminar at POSTECH's Department of Mathematics. For more information and updates, please visit:
