About me

I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at Boise State University. I focus on building numerical models for various fluid dynamics applications, particularly ocean and atmosphere. By reaching out to colleagues from disciplines, I am trying to bridge the gap between scientists working on model development, numerical methods and ocean and climate modeling. My research interests include spectral element and discontinuous Galerkin methods, geophysical fluid dynamics, ocean and atmosphere modeling, adaptive mesh refinement and high-performance scientific computing.

Right now I am working on the NUMO project, which aims to build a new non-hydrostatic ocean model capable of simulating ice-sheet/ocean interactions deep within Greenland Fjords. The ultimate goal is to improve the representation of Greenland meltwater impact on ocean circulation and sea level rise in climate models, as well as provide the science community with a tool to research ocean circulation within fjords. From the mathematics point of view, I use advanced high-order numerical methods and deploy them for a very new application, which is an interesting experiment in itself.

Before joining Boise State, I was a postdoc at the Naval Postgraduate School, Department of Applied Mathematics,  in Monterey, CA, and an Assistant Researcher in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I have received a  Ph.D. in Engineering degree from the University of Warwick, UK, and an M.Sc. in Scientific Computing from the same institution. I have completed undergraduate studies at the Faculty of Power and Aeronautical Engineering, Warsaw University of Technology in Poland, where I have obtained a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering.
