CV (pdf)

I am a professor at the University of Washington Applied Mathematics Department, an affiliate investigator at the Allen Institute for Brain Science, and am adjunct faculty in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics and a member of the Program in Neuroscience.

Our group is supported by UW, the Burroughs-Wellcome Fund (BWF) Scientific Interfaces Program, the NSF, the NIH, the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering, the Boeing Endowment; we are also grateful for past support from the Simons Foundation.

Before coming to UW, I was a postdoctoral fellow in mathematical neuroscience in the group of Prof. John Rinzel, at NYU's Courant Institute and Center for Neural Science. In 2004, I completed my Ph.D in Princeton's Program in Applied and Computational Mathematics, advised by Prof. Phil Holmes and co-advised by Prof. Jonathan Cohen. At Princeton I also closely with Prof. Hersch Rabitz, and other wonderful faculty. My graduate work was supported by the National Science Foundation, the Burroughs-Wellcome Fund, and Princeton's Graduate School. Before I moved to Princeton, I worked at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and studied Engineering Physics at UC-Berkeley.

Outside of applied math, I delight in the mountains of the west (sometimes rock climbing with family and friends) and in watching my son grow in this incredible and vibrant community.
