Research Interests

My research integrates analytic and geometric techniques to study partial differential equations. In particular my research investigates global/finite-in-time existence and stability results to geometric equations that model wave-like phenomena (i.e., relativistic membranes).

I am also working on regularity theory for the real Monge-Ampère equation with hopeful applications to generated Jacobian equations.
