Bio and Interests
I am a postdoctoral associate at MIT working with Prof. Daniel Rothman. My research interests focus on various phenomena which pertain to continuum mechanics and statistical physics. In particular, I am interested in the following fields: Laplacian and Poisson growth – Developing mathematical tools and understanding pattern formation and growth mechanisms in Laplacian and Poisson fields. Granular-fluid flow – Investigating the interaction between hydrodynamic forces and granular materials. Evolution of ramified networks – Understanding the evolution and complexity of the ramified structure of channel networks. Fracture mechanics – Developing criteria for crack propagation in harmonic and bi-harmonic fields. More can be found here.
