I am an RTG postdoctoral instructor in the Mathematics Department of the University of Texas at Austin and a postdoctoral researcher at ICES.
My research interests are in applied mathematics, numerical analysis, and scientific computing.
I primarily collaborate with Irene Gamba on conservative spectral methods methods for the Boltzmann transport equation. I am a co-PI on the NSF-DMS grant "Accurate high performance computing for nonlinear collisional kinetic theory", which investigates the use of high performance computing resources in deterministic simulation of kinetic problems. This work has applications in aerospace engineering, plasma physics, micro-engineering and many other areas. I do much of my computation at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC).
I have also worked with Shi Jin and Jian-Guo Liu on asymptotic-preserving schemes for compressible fluid problems, and with with Cory Hauck on asymptotic-preserving methods for linear diffusive transport.
When I'm not doing math, I enjoy cooking, biking, baseball, good food, clowning with my rescued cocker spaniels, and listening to Cubs games on the radio.
