In the Fall of 2013, I joined the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences at the University of Colorado Denver. Prior to that I was a research scientist (level 2) in the Department of Statistics at Colorado State University. There, I worked closely with Dr. Don Estep (now chair of the Department of Statistics) and his research group on uncertainty quantification, inverse problems, stochastic spectral methods, a posteriori error estimation, and data assimilation methods. After finishing my Ph.D., I was an ICES Postdoctoral Research Fellow and was then promoted to a Research Associate in the Computational Hydraulics Group directed by Dr. Clint Dawson within the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) at The University of Texas at Austin where I applied my mathematical research areas to problems involving storm surge from hurricanes and tropical cyclones in the Gulf of Mexico.
I am currently serving as Director for the Center for Computational Mathematics (CCM). This is a three-year appointment that I began in Fall 2014. Please visit the CCM wiki page for more information.
