My research develops numerical methods and accompanying software for coupled multi physics problems.  Most recently I have been working with projects in the climate modeling and plasma physics application areas.  I have experience with vortex methods, Lagrangian particle methods, discontinuous Galerkin methods, and Lagrangian/semi-Lagrangian transport schemes.    


 Ph.D. Applied Mathematics, University of Michigan, 2013. 

B.S. (honors) Oceanography, U.S. Naval Academy, 2002.

I was an active duty Naval officer from 2002-2007, serving in the weapons department aboard USS SHOUP (DDG 86)  and in the operations department at the Naval Maritime Forecast Center / Joint Typhoon Warning Center, Pearl Harbor HI.  

Following my time in the Navy, I was a primary instructor for the University of Michigan's introductory calculus program (calc I, II, and III).  After graduate school I spent a year as a postdoctoral assistant professor, also in the mathematics department at the University of Michigan.  

I joined Sandia in 2014 as that year's John von Neumann Postdoctoral Fellow, and transitioned to a permanent staff position in 2016.
