I'm presently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics where I'm working with Professors Markos Katsoulakis and Luc Rey-Bellet. Previously, I was a Göran Gustafsson Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mathematics Department at KTH in Stockholm where I worked with Professor Anders Szepessy in the Numerical Analysis Group. I conducted my PhD studies under the supervision of Professor István Gyöngy, head of the research group in Probability and Stochastic Analysis, in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Edinburgh. My research lies at the emerging interface between probability and computational mathematics: uncertainty quantification and numerical analysis for stochastic systems.
During the 2010/2011 Edinburgh academic year I organized the School of Mathematic's PG Colloquium and the previous year I served as one of the two elected postgraduate representatives in the Graduate School.
I have a lovely wife, a son, and a daughter. Originally from Philadelphia, I graduated with a BA in Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2008 where I held a Mayor's Scholarship. I'm very thankful for the help and support I received from the PENNCAP office during my studies. While attending Penn I worked for the Free Library of Philadelphia where I assisted the Office of Public Service Support in collecting data on outreach programs and managing grants. I also presented science and technology literacy programs. I also helped run Penn's Science and Technology Wing and Pi Mu Epsilon, the undergraduate mathematics society.
