My research interests are in applied numerical analysis and computational mathematics. In particular, I am interested in developing finite volume methods for hyperbolic, parabolic and elliptic PDEs on adaptive, logically Cartesian grids.

Application areas in which I have been involved include modeling of combustion processes, pattern formation in biology, crystal growth, and modeling of atmospheric flows on the sphere.
