    Welcome to my website! My current research focuses on numerical partial differential equations with applications to blood flow modeling and clinical decision support. I have also done some work in numerical linear algebra with application to spectral theory of quasicrystal models. This summer I will begin as a postdoc at UNC Chapel Hill working with Boyce Griffith.
