Tzanio Kolev is a computational mathematician at the Center for Applied Scientific Computing, where he works on efficient finite element discretizations and solvers for problems arising in various application areas, such as compressible shock hydrodynamics, multi-material ALE simulations, radiation-hydrodynamics and computational electromagnetics.
Tzanio's research interests include the development and analysis of advanced finite element discretization methods, massively parallel preconditioners, discretization-enhanced algebraic multigrid algorithms, and the design and implementation of large-scale scientific software. He joined Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 2004 after earning a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Texas A&M University. His dissertation was on least-squares methods for electromagnetic problems.
