Cornelia Mihaila


I am currently a postdoc at the University of Chicago. I finished my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin in May 2018. My advisor was Professor Francesco Maggi. My research interests are in geometric measure theory, the calculus of variations and partial differential equations.
