I am a Griffiths Assistant Research Professor at the Department of Mathematics at Duke University. Prior to arriving at Duke, I completed my Ph.D. from the Department of Mathematics at the University of Maryland. The main focus of my research is asymptotic problems arising from Branching Processes, Branching Diffusions and related Dynamical Systems.
