Research Interests

My primary areas of interest are scientific computing and high-performance computing.  Scientific computing is a field at the intersection of mathematics, computer science, and statistics, and past projects I have worked on tend to have elements of all three fields.  High-performance computing generally involves writing efficient parallel programs to make effective use of modern computing resources.

Professional Activities

Research with Students

I am currently working with a student on the creation of a fast statistical emulator for NASA’s Mars Global Climate Model.

In general, projects with me tend to involve a mathematical and/or parallel computing theme.

An undergraduate student I am working with was recently awarded the Kindschi Fellowship to continue his research at GVSU.
