My research falls into the general area of computational mathematics. The main focus of this work is on the development, analysis, and implementation of numerical methods for problems that can be described, either fully or partially, by a system of nonlinear hyperbolic partial differential equations (PDEs). I am particularly interested in problems from fluid dynamics, plasma physics, and astrophysics, and I strongly believe that the interplay between applications and mathematics can lead to important advances in both.

Research

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.



Teaching

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.
