I received my Ph.D. degree in Mathematics from the University of Oklahoma  under the guidance of Professor John P. Albert. I am currently working as a full-time Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Trocaire College, Buffalo, New York. My Ph.D. dissertation is on stability of solitary waves for Schrodinger-KdV systems. I am originally from Nepal, a beautiful Himalayan country. Besides doing mathematics and teaching it, my hobbies are traveling, playing chess, reading science fiction books, listening to music and watching television. I am also interested in world geography and world history. 


My research interests are in Applied Analysis and Partial Differential Equations. Specifically, I am interested in well-posedness (local and global in time) and stability theory of nonlinear dispersive PDEs. In my current work, I have applied concentration compactness and convexity techniques to study the existence and stability of solitary waves for coupled systems of nonlinear dispersive systems which arise in plasma physics and fluid mechanics.
