I'm a first year Ph.D. student in the Department of Applied Mathematics at UC Davis, working under Prof. John Owens. Before moving to Davis, I taught high school mathematics at The Mathematics & Science High School at Clover Hill. I received a B.S. in Mathematics and Physics from University of Richmond.

Research Interests

Over the years my research interests have ranged from designing codewords for digital communication, analysis and statistical methods in nuclear and high energy physics and developing data selection algorithms for nuclear detectors. Throughout my experiences I've learned to appreciate that some of the most interesting and difficult problems our society faces cannot be solved by solely studying a single discipline. Consequently, my research interests lie at the cross intersection between applied mathematics, scientific computing, and computer graphics.

Lately I've been learning about complex fluids (part of a NSF VIGRE Research Focus Group at UC Davis) and computational fluid dynamics as well as parallel computing.
