My main interests are in stochastic analysis, in particular stochastic differential equations. I also have interests in applied mathematics, and some of my research in this area has been featured in popular press: DukeToday, Pharmacy Times, Futurity, WUNC, Healio, ACSH, ICT, AHC Media. Currently, my research is supported in part by grant DMS-1612898 from the National Science Foundation.
