I am a computational mathematician in the Center for Applied Scientific Computing at LLNL. My research interests are in multigrid preconditioning, high-order finite element methods, PDE-constrained optimization, and high performance scientific computing, more generally.

I received my Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Colorado, Boulder, under Xiao-Chuan Cai. Before coming to LLNL, I did a postdoc in the math department at Louisiana State University and another postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg.
