I am a PhD candidate in the Mathematics Department at the University of British Columbia (UBC). My academic advisors are Michael Ward and Juncheng Wei. I completed a MSc in Mathematics at UBC in 2014 under the joint supervision of Anthony Peirce and Michael Ward. Prior to this I completed undergraduate degrees in Engineering Physics (BE) and Mathematical Physics (BSc) at the University of Saskatchewan.
I am primarily interested in the application of asymptotic and singular perturbation techniques to the analysis of pattern forming systems. Recently this has taken the form of studying the structure and stability properties of strongly localized solutions to bulk-membrane coupled reaction diffusion equations.
