Room Number: Mathematical Sciences Building, Room: MB-402


Supervisor: Dr Arick Shao.

Research Interests: My research concerns geometric and analytical methods for studying partial differential equations, with a particular focus on applications in the field of general relativity. Recently, I have been working on unique continuation results for solutions of wave equations across conformal boundaries of asymptotically AdS spacetimes.

Background: Prior to joining QMUL in Autumn 2018, I completed a Master of Mathematics degree at Durham University.
