I am a Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics
and a Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at Columbia University.

In 2015 I received a Math + X Investigator Award (2015-2025) from the Simons 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
