I am a computational mathematician.  I conduct research on the design, analysis, and application of numerical methods for partial differential equations, including basic discretization schemes, grid adaptation, advanced iterative methods for solving large-scale systems of equations, and applying these techniques to numerical simulations for practical problems (such as complex fluids,  fluid-structure interactions, electromagnetics, batteries, solar cells, and reservoir simulations).    more...
