Before joining Georgia Tech, I received my M.S in applied mathematics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, as well as a B.S in mathematics and a B.S in geology from the same institution. My primary research areas are in underwater acoustics and signal processing, where we study how mechanical waves propagate in fluids (particularly sea water). In order to achieve this, we use a range of mathematical tools to interpret acoustic signals. There are numerous interesting applications of acoustics such as sonar, underwater drone guidance, underwater communications, medical imaging, and more. In the long run, I would like to research and develop acoustic technologies while also researching ambient noise / acoustic signal processing.
