Aaron is a computational scientist in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing (CASC) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. He is a postdoctoral researcher working on TOPS SciDAC projects. His research interests include scientific computation, numerical linear algebra, mathematical modeling, and computational fluid dynamics.
Prior to joining CASC in September 2010, Aaron was an National Research Council postdoctoral research associate at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, where he worked with Jeff McFadden. Aaron earned his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computation from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 2008, working with thesis advisors Howard Elman and Anil Deane. Aaron received a B.S. in mathematics at University of Southern Mississippi in 2001.
