My research focus is on applied and computational mathematics, in particular on parallel scientific computing, inverse problems and optimization with PDEs, uncertainty quantification, and numerical methods for variational inequalities. The main applications driving my research are from geophysics and fluid dynamics.
Teaching: In fall ‘19, I’ll be teaching an Advanced topics course on Finite Element Methods. Here’s a flyer with more details.
Organization: I’m co-organizing Courant’s Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing Seminar I’m also organizing a workshop on Optimization and Inversion under Uncertainty as part of the RICAM Special Semester on Optimization 2019.
SISC: I am an associate editor for the SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing
Group: Current PhD students: Karina Koval, Chen Li, Melody Shih, Shanyin Tong (all NYU). Former PhD students: Yair Daon (NYU), Tobin Isaac and Johann Rudi (both at UT Austin, co-advised with Omar Ghattas). Current postdocs at NYU: Andrew Giuliani (co-mentored with Marsha Berger), Tonatiuh Sanchez-Vizuet (co-mentored with Antoine Cerfon), Matt Dunlop, Florian Wechsung.
