- Ph.D., Applied Mathematics, Brown University, 1998. Advisor: Chi-Wang Shu
- Master's, Applied Mathematics, Brown University, 1995.
- B.S., Applied Mathematics, Brown University, 1993.
- 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 Academia.edu.
- Spectral Methods for Time-Dependent Problems (By Jan Hesthaven, Sigal Gottlieb, and David Gottlieb, 2007).
- Strong Stability Preserving Runge-Kutta and Multistep Time Discretizations (By Sigal Gottlieb, David Ketcheson, and Chi-Wang Shu, 2011).
- 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.
