I am interested in raising students' interest in math!

I like to explore innovative teaching techniques to help university-level students motivate and engage in learning mathematics while raising their metacognitive awareness. I am also interested in using educational technology in classroom to facilitate students' learning.

My math-specific interests lie in the study of partial differential equations and existence of their solutions from a functional/convex analysis point of view.
