I am currently an associate professor in the Department of Mathematics and Institute for Computational Engineering and Science in the University of Texas at Austin. I got my PhD from Columbia University and spent a year as a L. E. Dickson instructor in University of Chicago before I moved to Austin in Fall 2008.
I have been coordinating the Math/ICES Center of Numerical Analysis Seminar since I joined University of Texas at Austin.
Here are some information on the undergraduate/graduate courses I am teaching/have taught.
Here is my vita in case you are interested.
Here is a very brief research summary .
My main research interests are: inverse boundary value problems, hybrid multi-physics inverse problems, imaging in complex media, numerical algorithms for kinetic equations, statistical physics of random graphs.
Here are some of my recent publications:
