About

I'm presently a Baxter Fellow in Applied Mathematics at the University of Dundee. I am an applied mathematicain specializing in uncertainty quantification, stochastic and predictive modeling, and simulation science.

Previously, I was a postdoc at RWTH Aachen University working with Professor Raul Tempone, an Alexander von Humboldt Professor, in the Chair of Mathematics for Uncertainty Quantification. Prior to RWTH Aachen, I was in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst working with Professors Markos Katsoulakis and Luc Rey-Bellet and, before that, I held a Göran Gustafsson Postdoctoral Fellowship 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.

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, managing grants, and presenting science and technology literacy programs. I also played leadership roles in Penn's Science and Technology Wing and Pi Mu Epsilon, the undergraduate mathematics society.
