I currently hold a 3-year Assistant Professor/Lecturer position in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah. I primarily work with the Math Biology group.

I develop numerical methods that enable the efficient simulation of mathematical models. My primary research focus is the use of Radial Basis Function interpolation to generate meshfree methods for the solution of PDEs on surfaces and irregular domains. In addition, I work with Immersed Boundary methods, in both the original Peskin formulation and the more modern (and general) Forcing method formulations. I am also very familiar with different parallel programming paradigms, and frequently use them in my research.

I obtained my PhD in Computing (with a focus on Scientific Computing) from the School of Computing at the University of Utah under Professor Robert M. Kirby. I was co-advised by Professor Aaron Fogelson, and mentored by Professor Grady Wright.
