Biographical Statement

I was born and raised in western New York and received my undergraduate degree as a mathematics major at SUNY Geneseo. I entered the Mathematics PhD program at Indiana University, Bloomington in August of 2006. My thesis and research at IU looks at models for compressible fluid flows. I enjoy studying classical analysis techniques when applied to weak convergence arguments in the study of partial differential equations.
