About Me

I am a Hedrick Assistant Adjunct Professor at Department of Mathematics, UCLA, under the mentorship of Prof. Inwon Kim.

Here is my CV.

Research Interests: PDEs and applied mathematics, especially evolution free boundary problems, fluid-structure interaction problems, calculus of variations, liquid crystals, and complex and active fluids.
