and a Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at Columbia University.

In 2015 I received a Math + X Investigator Award from the Simons Foundation .

I am also faculty/co-PI in the Columbia Optics and Quantum Electronics IGERT, funded by the National Science Foundation.

My research interests are in the areas of Partial Differential Equations,

Applied Analysis, Dynamical Systems and their role in the study of Waves and Multiscale Phenomena in Inhomogeneous and Random Media.

Research Projects include:

1) Waves in novel media, e.g. honeycomb structures, metamaterials, cloaking; Toplogically protected states

2) Nonlinear Scattering, Dynamics of Hamiltonian PDEs

and applications to the Control of Coherent Structures in Optics and Quantum Physics

(3) Scattering Resonances and Applications to

Electromagnetics, Acoustics and Fluid dynamics

3) Optimization and Inverse Problems
