Profile

Vaibhav is a 4th year PhD student, working under the supervision of Dr Arick Shao. He works on control theory of wave equations in geometric settings. This involves working with ideas from PDEs, geometry, and functional analysis. A main part of the PhD is to generalise results in control theory to Lorentzian geometry backgrounds. 

Vaibhav completed his MS in Mathematics from IISER Kolkata, India in 2017.
