I am a PhD student in the Applied Mathematics, Statistics, and Scientific Computing (AMSC) program at the University of Maryland researching numerical methods for computational aerodynamics, specifically compact-reconstruction WENO schemes. I am advised by Dr. James Baeder.
My recent work has focused on spectral optimization of WENO-type schemes and finishing development of a Riemann-solver-free method for the Euler equations. Here is an example of that method applied to the Rayleigh-Taylor instability, in which the artificial dissipation of the method plays the role of physical viscosity.
I also maintain the Math 246 Exercise Environment.
From August 2016 to June 2018 I organized the AMSC Student Seminar, a biweekly event where graduate students in applied mathematics present their research or any other mathematical topic they find interesting. Below are the talks that I myself have given.
