Research Interests

Generally speaking, I am interested in scientific computing, numerical methods for linear PDEs, and numerical linear algebra. My recent work has focused on the following areas:

• “Fast” algorithms such as the Fast Multipole Method and fast direct solvers.
• Integral equation formulations for the mathematical modeling of physics and other real world applications.
• Wave scattering, acoustics, variable media.
• Techniques for handling challenging geometries such as corners, edges, and periodic domains.


"An adaptive high order direct solution technique for elliptic boundary value problems" has been accepted to SIAM Journal of Scientific Computing.
Peter Geldermans passed his PhD Thesis Proposal on October 4.
Yabin Zhang has received a SIAM Student Travel Award to attend the SIAM CSE Conference in Spokane, WA, February 2019.
Natalie Beams has received an early career travel award to attend the SIAM CSE Conference in Spokane, WA, February 2019.
