I am a DPhil (PhD) student within the OxPDE research group of the Mathematical Institute in the University of Oxford. My supervisors are José Carrillo and Matias Delgadino.

I obtained my MSci during my undergraduate studies from 2013-2017 at Imperial College London. Afterward, I obtained my MAst from 2017-2018 from the University of Cambridge.

As an applied mathematician, my main interest is the study of Partial Differential Equations (PDE) for modelling physical phenomena. In particular, the focus of my thesis is on the gradient flow structure of the spatially homogeneous Landau-Fokker-Planck equation $$\partial_t f(t,v) = \nabla \cdot \left(f(v)\int_{\mathbb{R}^3}f(v_*) |v-v_*|^{2+\gamma} \left[I - \frac{v \otimes v}{|v|^2} \right](\nabla \log f(v) - \nabla \log f(v_*))dv_* \right), \quad \gamma \in [-4,0]. $$
