I am an Assistant Adjunct Professor in the mathematics department at UCLA.

I completed my PhD in 2015 at the University of California, Berkeley under the supervision of Daniel Tataru. From 2015–2018, I was a Simons Junior Fellow at the Courant Institute, NYU.

I will be on the job market in the Fall of 2021.


My research interests are in PDE and analysis. Primarily, I work on problems arising from the study of nonlinear waves and fluid dynamics. My current interests include: integrable PDEs, vortex filaments, wave turbulence, degenerate dispersive equations, and surface and internal waves.

I live in Venice, Los Angeles with my wife, Reesha, and greyhound, Vivian. I am originally from London, UK and have been in Los Angeles since July 2018. I was previously a postdoctoral researcher at the Courant Institute, NYU and a member of the Simons Society of Fellows. I completed my PhD at the University of California, Berkeley, where my advisor was Daniel Tataru, and my undergraduate degree at Magdalen College, Oxford.
