 Education:
MA Mathematics  Duke University  2005 
BS Mathematics  Virginia Military Institute  2003 
BS Physics  Virginia Military Institute  2003 
 Specialties:

Applied Math
 Research Interests: Rotating thin films
Current projects:
The influence of Marangoni forces on instabilities in spin coating
Interest in studying rotation of thin films comes from the industrial process of spin coating where undesirable fingering instabilities have been observed. I work on computational model which describes dynamics of spinning thin film including effects of all forces affecting the fluid on the fluid motion.
 Areas of Interest:
Thin Films Mathematical Modeling Mathematical Biology
 Keywords:
thin films, spin coating, mathematics modeling
