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. If you are interested in a more serious photo, where I am not photo-bombed by
a Japanese owl, **here’s one**.

# Activities/Roles:

*Teaching:* In fall ‘18, I’ll be teaching **UA Numerical Analysis** and the
Advanced topics course **Numerical and Variational Methods for Inverse
Problems** (**flyer**).

*Organization:* I’m co-organizing **Courant’s Numerical Analysis and
Scientific Computing Seminar**
Also organizing a workshop on Optimization and Inversion under
Uncertainty as part of the **RICAM Special Semester on Optimization
2019**.

*Funding:* My research is supported by NSF
(DMS-1723211,
EAR-1646337),
the Department of Energy (DOE) under the SciDAC-4 program
ProSPect, KAUST, and the Simons Foundation.

*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 (starting 2019).

*Postdoc opportunities:* I have an open postdoc position focusing on
optimization of magnetic fields to confine plasmas. If you are
interested, please email me. Please also email me if you have applied
to a previous position and are still available and interested.
