I completed my PhD in Mathematics at Washington University in St. Louis under direction of Prof. Matt Kerr, after that I was a postdoc at Imperial College London under supervision of Prof. Tom Coates and Prof. Alessio Corti.
Research Interests
Analysis of PDE

I'm interested in nonlinear elliptic problems, in particular, variational equations and topics related to existence and regularity of solutions.

Hodge theory & Complex Algebraic Geometry

I'm interested in Algebraic cyles and its connections. Topics include cycle class maps, Hodge-D and Hodge conjectures, higher Chow groups, real regulators and related topics.
