Bio


I am a third year Ph.D. student in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, advised by Prof. George Papanicolaou. My research focuses on the application of optimization, PDE analysis, and stochastic modeling to applications in wave propagation and imaging problems. Prior to coming to Stanford I was a researcher with the Israeli Navy, focusing on propagation models for underwater acoustic waves.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests


I am interested in investigating and modeling PDEs in complex and stochastic environment for various applications such as imaging and wave propagation, and their interface with statistical learning and optimization.

In the past I have applied Beam based asymptotic methods to treat wave propagation in complex scattering media (with Prof. Ehud Heyman).
