Welcome! I am a Hedrick Assistant Adjunct Professor at UCLA mathematics department, under the mentorship of Dr. Andrea Bertozzi. Before UCLA, I was at Arizona State University, where I obtained my PhD in mechanical engineering in May 2020, under the mentorship of Dr. Spring Berman. My primary research interest is control theory of dynamical systems. In particular, I have worked on control of probability distributions with applications in swarm robotics, and currently, I am working on control of thin liquid films. My CV can be found here.
