Summary of Research

My research has been in the area of numerical methods for solution of PDEs. Previously my work has been focused on fully-implicit solvers for a reduced model of Rayleigh-Taylor instability suppression. My graduate work currently is in the area of Fourier-continuation methods for efficient computation of PDEs in complex geometries.
