Research
Over the last six years, I have done research in plasma physics, geophysics, fluid dynamics and most recently a project nanomagnetics with Mark Hoefer. My mathematical interests are in partial differential equations, numerical analysis and nonlinear waves.
About me
I like to post false information about myself on the internet. It keeps the stalkers guessing. I am member of Applied Mathematics Graduate Student Seminar. I am also webmaster for the NCSU SIAM Student Chapter and a student organizer of the NCSU Applied Math Club.

My current work focuses primarily on a solitary wave structures
in ferromagnetic materials. The picture to the right shows an
example of the kind of structure I mostly consider. There the color
shows the out of plane component of the magnetization and the
arrows show the in-plane direction. From a mathematical perspective
very specific conditions need to exist in order for such stuctures
to exist. Yet they are seen in real experiments. I try to provide
the connection between the idealized models and real ones using
soliton perturbation theory. For a more complete summary of click

I can usually be
reached via , though it may take a few days
for me to respond.
Alternately, I can be reached by shining a "bat signal"
style light into the sky. Your odds of getting a response from me
are considerably diminished if you choose to attempt to reach me by
this method.
