I am currently a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at the Mathematics Department of Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in 2008 at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Lausanne) under the supervision of Prof. Robert C. Dalang. Then, I was an Assistant Professor (Lecturer) at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Utah, Salt Lake City from 2009-2011.
My research is in the field of Stochastic PDEs, more precisely about the non-linear stochastic heat equation (which corresponds to the KPZ equation of physics), as well as the nonlinear wave equations. I'm interested in the study of their solutions, such as obtaining explicit expressions and careful estimates for moments. Such results have important implications when it comes to the intermittency and chaos properties for solutions to SPDEs. I've recently started working on connections between SPDEs and problems in Stochastic Geometry. I'm also interested in applications of Probability in Engineering and Mathematical Finance. Below is a copy of my most recent research statement, as well as my CV.
