I am one of the co-organizers for the joint Brown/BU PDE seminar.

In the study of differential equations, it is not always clear what will be the fruitful mathematical questions. The first thing I often do in a new research project, therefore, is to

I also have a background in

You can find examples of how I've used programming as an educational tool in the "About Me" section of my teaching page (in particular: the sections on "Providing students with tools" and "Projects").
