I am teaching
a special topic course "Energeetic Variational Approaches in Complex Fluids" during the fall 2014.
The class meets every Tuesday and Thurday at 4:30p -- 5:40p in Room 104 Osmond Lab.
Teaching Training 2014
With the help of Sara Jamshidi,
I am also coordinating
a departmental teaching training program for all instructors and TAs .
My current research interests center around partial differential equations,
calculus of variations and their applications in
During the summer of 2013, we organized a program
for undergraduate students
Energetic Variational Approaches
Biology and Physiology
Mixtures and Interfaces, Grain Growth, Evolution of Surfaces
Viscoelastic Fluids and Polymeric Materials
Here are some of my
