About Me

Picture tbc

I am a 4th year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at Princeton University, advised by Professor Mihalis Dafermos.
I am interested in analysis and PDE, more specifically nonlinear wave equations and general relativity. In particular, my current research concerns the formation of behaviour of singularities in general relativity, such as singularities arising from black holes as well as Big Bang type singularities.



  1. Kasner-like description of spacelike singularities in spherically symmetric spacetimes with scalar matter, preprint available at arxiv:2304.04802.
  2. (with Maxime van de Moortel) Kasner inversions and fluctuating collapse inside hairy black holes with charged matter, preprint available at arxiv:2302.00046.
