Research

Current research I am currently working towards the PhD under the supervision of Gordon Slade. I am focusing on the analysis of two critical 4-dimensional models, the n-component |φ|4 spin model and the weakly self-avoiding walk, by a rigorous renormalisation group method.

Previous work I have completed my MSc in mathematics under supervision of Vojkan Jaksic and Robert Seiringer at McGill University in Montreal. My thesis was on the Entropy production of a Gaussian dynamical system .

Teaching and TA work

January – December 2014 I am the Head TA of the Math Learning Centre. I am responsible for the operational oversight of the centre: scheduling, upkeep, TA management, etc.

January – April 2012 I was the instructor of section 202 of Math 105, integral calculus with applications to commerce and social sciences.
