Research

Research interests

  • My research interests are numerical analysis and scientific computing. Specifically, I am interested in high-order numerical methods for simulation of hyperbolic PDEs with shocks.
  • WENO, spectral, and pseudo spectral methods, as well as strong stability preserving time discretizations.
  • Reduced basis methods for solving PDEs with many parameters.
  • Weighted essentially non-oscillatory methods
