I am currently a postdoctoral researcher in the Mathematics Department at the University of California, Berkeley. In Fall 2018, I will be joining the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a Sidney Fernbach Postdoctoral Fellow.

Previously, I completed my Ph.D. in applied mathematics at Brown University, where I was co-advised by Professor Per-Olof Persson and Professor Chi-Wang Shu.

My research focuses on the areas of scientific computing and computational fluid dynamics. Specific topics of interest include: high-order discontinuous Galerkin methods, implicit time integration, and numerical linear algebra.
