CV and research summary (pdf)

I am an associate professor at the University of Washington Applied Mathematics Department, an adunct 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 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.
