My research focus is on applied and computational mathematics, in particular on parallel scientific computing, inverse problems and optimization with PDEs, uncertainty quantification, and on numerical methods for variational inequalities. The main applications driving my research are in geophysics and fluid dynamics.

# Conferences, Travel and News

- Nov 2: I’m doing two short intro sessions to the computing environment at
CIMS. You can access the material by signing up for this
**Piazza site**. Intro/question sessions are on Tuesday 11/8 and 11/15 at 12:30-13:30 in WWH #101. If you are intending to take my special topics class on HPC next semester, and you aren’t familiar with command line tools and basic UNIX, I highly recommend that you get familiar with this material posted on the Piazza site. Please email if you have questions. - Oct 15: I will visit the Ecole Normale Superieoure de Lyon for the week of Nov 21-26. I will then visit Caltech from Nov 27-30.
- Oct 15: I’ll be at the
**AGU Fall Meeting**in San Francisco from December 12-16, and will give a talk entitled*Towards Bayesian Inversion in Mantle Convection*on December 13.
