About Me


I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from Rutgers University - New Brunswick in May 2011. I was also a post-doctoral research associate both at Rutgers and The University of Cologne in Germany from 2011 through 2014. My research interests lie in the areas of Mathematical Physics, Kinetic Theory, Statistical Mechanics, Electrodynamics, and General Relativity. My thesis work was carried out under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Michael Kiessling and concerned the relativistic Vlasov-Poisson system (a pseudo-relativistic model of a plasma interacting with its self-induced Newtonian gravitational field).
