Bart's research interests are PDE-constrained optimization and uncertainty quantification with a focus on complex applications such as fluid flow, geoscience, electromagnetic, and mechanics.  He is co-developer of the Multi-physics/scale Interface for Large scale Optimization (MILO) and the Hyper-Differential Sensitivity Analysis library (HdsaLib).  Formerly a Petroleum engineer for Texaco and an applications manager at Cray Research, he joined Sandia in 1999 and is currently a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff.
