About

I strive to combine advanced mathematical concepts and experimental results with physical intuition about the modeling of flowing materials in order to make progress on fundamental questions in mechanics. Specifically, an overarching theme in my research is transport (e.g., as a means of effecting mixing or for mitigating separation).
