Welcome to my mathematics website.

My research concerns mathematical problems that arise in the study of waves in composite materials. Much of my work deals with resonance in open waveguides. The mathematics involves the areas of partial differential equations; boundary-integral equations; optimization and calculus of variations; and open systems and resonance. You are invited to explore the links to the left and learn more about my research and teaching and what my students and colleagues at LSU are doing.
