About me

I am an assistant professor of Mathematics at UMass Dartmouth and a co-director of our data science program. Previously, I was a research associate at Cornell University working in Saul Teukolsky's numerical relativity group and a Joint Space-Science Institute postdoctoral fellow at the University of Maryland working with Manuel Tiglio. In 2011 I completed my PhD under the supervision of Jan Hesthaven at Brown University.

My research interests include Bayesian inference problems, surrogate and reduced order modeling, gravitational wave data science, scientific and high performance computing, object and task-based parallel programing, scalable and parallel algorithms, discontinuous Galerkin methods, computational general relativity and fluid dynamics, and near-field to far-field methods.

The applications I have been most interested in are motivated primarily by general relativity, gravitational waves, and large datasets.

Additional information about me can be found in my Curriculum Vitae. Please also visit our Center for Scientific Computing and Visualization Research and the UmassD gravity group webpages.
