  • 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.
    I am interested in WENO, spectral, and pseudo spectral methods, as well as strong stability preserving time discretizations.
    I am also interested in reduced basis methods for solving PDEs with many parameters.
  • My work can be followed at ResearchGate and




  • I have taught the numerical analysis sequence (MTH361 and MTH362) for many years, and also the courses on Mathematical Research and Communication (offered as MTH499). I developed and taught the general education Women in Mathematics course that aims to cover mathematical topics of historical importance through the work of female mathematicians. In addition, I have taught College Algebra, Discrete Mathematics, PreCalculus, Calculus I and II, and Differential Equations.
