I received my PhD from the Computational and Applied Mathematics (CAAM) program at Rice University in May 2007. I am now an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Loyola University Maryland. Please check my updated website at Loyola.


I am working on calculating a symmetry preserving singular value decomposition (SPSVD), which is a matrix factorization that gives the best symmetric low rank approximation to a set of data. This decomposition has applications in molecular dynamics and face detection. For more information, click Research or look at my SIMAX paper.
