CV and research summary (pdf)

I am an associate professor at the University of Washington Applied Mathematics Department, and am adjunct in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics and a member of the Program in Neurobiology and Behavior.




Our group is supported by the Burroughs-Wellcome Fund (BWF) Scientific Interfaces Program, the NSF, the NIH, and the Pacific Northwest Center for Neural Engineering; group members receive additional supported from NSERC.

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 have worked on science policy issues, and I regularly take some time off to go rock and ice climbing.
