Dan Martin is a computational scientist and group leader for the Applied Numerical Algorithms Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His research involves the development of algorithms and software for solving systems of PDEs using adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) finite volume schemes, high (4th)-order finite volume schemes for conservation laws on mapped meshes, and Chombo development and support.
Current applications of interest are developing the BISICLES AMR ice sheet model as a part of the SCIDAC-funded ProSPect application partnership, and some development work related to the COGENT gyrokinetic modeling code, which is being developed in partnership with Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a part of the Edge Simulation Laboratory (ESL) collaboration. Dan joined ANAG and LBL as a post-doc in 1998. He has published in a broad range of application areas including projection methods for incompressible flow, adaptive methods for MHD, phase-field dynamics in materials, and Ice sheet modeling.
