My research is in the general area of Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing. More specifically, I work on high-order methods for hyperbolic partial differential equations. Furthermore, I am interested in developing these methods for mathematical models from fluid dynamics, plasma physics, and astrophysics. More information can be found on my research page.


I have taught mathematics at all levels (first-year undergraduate, advanced undergraduate, introductory graduate, and special topics graduate courses). My main interests are in applied and computational mathematics courses. More information can be found on my teaching page.
