McKenzie Black

I am currently a 5th year PhD candidate at the University of South Carolina (UofSC) in the Department of Mathematics under the supervision of Changhui Tan.  Prior to  graduate school, I received a  Bachelors of Science from Virginia Tech in Mathematics. 

I am  interested in the analysis of Partial Differential Equations (PDE) specifically concerning nonlinear partial differential equations, and alignment models.  My research was recently partially supported by the UofSC SPARC grant.
