About Me


I am a post-doctoral fellow in the Mathematics Department at the University of British Colombia.  

I got my PhD degree at Dalhousie in August 2021 under the supervision of Theodore Kolokolnikov.




My research lies in dynamical systems and mathematical modelling.  A focus of my work has involved

analysis of pattern formation in reaction-diffusion systems using asymptotic and singular perturbation
