I am a Principal Member of the Technical Staff in the Optimization & Uncertainty Quantification department.  Since coming to Sandia, I have been involved in computational science and engineering spanning nonlinear solvers, code and multiphysics coupling, coupling algorithms, verification and uncertainty quantification, and plasma physics.  My work in these areas has been applied to several areas important to Sandia's mission and include compressible flows, electrostatic plasma behavior and more recently nuclear reactor performance.


I hold B.S. and M.S. degrees in Chemical Engineering from the University of Oklahoma and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota.  My theses involved numerical modeling of solid oxide fuel cells and drop dynamics in polymeric fluids, respectively.
