My Ph.D. dissertation concerned decay properties of solutions to the Benjamin-Ono IVP on weighted Sobolev spaces. My research interests involve KdV-like dispersive equations, their unique continuation properties, and more recently, questions related to control and stabilization of these equations on a periodic domain.

When I'm not working on PDEs, I also enjoy research investigations that involve undergraduate and masters students. We explore topics in PDEs, harmonic analysis, measure theory, numerical analysis, optimization, linear algebra and recently, classification problems in machine learning.

I enjoyed visiting the Universidad Autonoma del Estado de Hidalgo in Pachuca, Mexico in November 2018 for the 14 Annual Analysis & Mathematical Physics Symposium. I was able to share my control theory results; you may enjoy reading this brief article about the meeting.
