Biographical Info

I work in geometric analysis at the Mathematics Department of the University of Tennessee. I was a postdoc at Duke (2005-2008) and at the University of Warwick in the UK (2008-2009) before coming to Tennessee in the Fall of 2009. I completed my PhD thesis in 2005 at Cornell under the direction of Jose Escobar and Richard Schoen.

I have been a visiting researcher at the following institutions: IMPA in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2003-2004, and summers of 2010, 2011 and 2012); CMM at the University of Chile in Santiago, Chile (2012); AEI at the Max Planck Institute in Golm, Germany (2009); EFI at the University of Chicago, IL (summer 2007); and Stanford, CA (2004-2005).
