About me [back to top]

I am a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics, Syracuse University, USA. My research interest lies in numerical linear algebra with applications in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). My PhD advisor is Professor Howard Elman (UMD at College Park) and my postdoc mentor is Professor Sarah Olson (WPI).

Teaching [back to top]

In Fall 2017, I am teaching MAT 581: Numerical Methods with Programming. In Spring 2018, I am teaching MAT 296: Calculus II and MAT 684: Methods of Numerical Analysis II. All teaching materials for current students are available at Blackboard.

I am also developing a new course MAT 503: Matrix Methods for Data Science.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates [back to top]

Touring NOAA's survey ship "the Bigelow" in Newport, RI (June 2015)
I co-advised a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) project with Professor Burt Tilley at WPI. The project was sponsored by the National Science Foundation under award DMS-1263127, the Center for Industrial Mathematics and Statistics (CIMS) at WPI and the Northeast Fishery Science Center (NEFSC) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The four undergraudate students worked on this project were Cody FitzGerald (Univeristy of New Hampshire, now a graduate student at University of Utah), Alexis Gambino (Southern Methodist University), James Keane (University of Central Oklahoma) and China Mauck (Grinnell College, now also a graduate student at University of Utah). A major issue with modeling fish population dynamics is tracking the movement of multiple species among multiple regions. We explored different veins of models, including data-driven and PDE models.
