I am a 4th-year Applied Math Ph.D. student studying at UCLA under the advisement of Andrea Bertozzi and Joseph Teran. My Research interest is mathematical modeling and Partial Differential Equation inspired by physics and engineering. Prior to my current position at UCLA, I completed a Master's degree in Math from UCLA math and B.S in Mathematics from UC, Irvine. After living in the U.S. for several years, I finally found a simple enough way to explain how to pronounce my name! The secret is to pronounce "Buoyant" with "t" silenced.
