Brief Personal Statement:

I prefer fields of math which cater to abstract or concrete geometric intuition, and my research interests include traffic flow, fluid mechanics, and statistical mechanics

To use Freeman Dyson's labels, I am a "bird" and usually build the big picture before filling in the technical details. I enjoy spreading the joy of our subject to mathematicians and non-mathematicians alike and I seek out opportunities both to attend relevant conferences and to give talks.  As a way to collect useful math resources, I founded and maintain the website www.MathishToEnglish.com.
