I graduated from Rice University in 2014 with a double major in Applied Mathematics and Mathematics. After graduation, I worked for BP's Center for High Performance Computing, helping improve their parallel methods for acoustic/elastic wave propagation. Having joined Berkeley in 2016, I am now an Applied Math PhD Candidate. My research focuses on the areas of parallel computing and computational fluid dynamics. Specific topics of interest include: high-order discontinuous Galerkin methods, implicit time integration, numerical optimization, and fluid-structure interaction.
