Research Interests

Mathematical models in image analysis of the brain specifically hippocampus, cingulate gyrus, planum temporale, superior temporal gyrus, auditory cortex and medial prefrontal cortex which have been implicated in a variety of neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders as schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, major depression, speech and language processing. Mathematical models of physiological fluid mechanics phenomena such as cochlear fluid mechanics and micromechanics of cochlear outer hair cell. Computational and analytical methods for solving nonlinear partial differential equations arising in fluid mechanics and biology (e.g. boundary layer separation and EPDiff.) Online webcourses in applied mathematics.
