I earned a Ph. D. in Mathematics at Virginia Tech in 2008 under George Hagedorn. My area of research is mathematical physics, in particular approaching problems in quantum mechanics from a mathematically rigorous point of view. My work involves functional analysis and perturbation theory with applications to many-body chemical systems.
