I am primarily interested in mathematical biology, asymptotic methods, and combining analytics with numerics to arrive at system solutions. My thesis research centered around the development of a comprehensive model for the transduction mechanism of the mammalian cochlea. The fluid-solid interactions of the cochlea can be described by coupled PDEs, whereas, a micromechanical model has been developed to represent the outer hair cells' external forcing which influences the system nonlinearly. More details.
