My primary research interests are in computational mathematics and approximation theory. I am interested in mathematical software development, high order methods, and solutions to partial differential equations.

Non-Work Related Activities/Interests: 

This summer I am working as a mentor for the Enhancing Diversity in Graduate Education (EDGE) program whose goal is to strengthen the ability of women and minority students to successfully complete graduate programs in the mathematical sciences. I was a participant myself in 2016 and it is a great privilege to work this year as a mentor to the very talented women participating in EDGE virtually. I also volunteer with the International Rescue Committee at a welcome center in Phoenix. The center provides vital support to refugees awaiting court dates. In my free time, I enjoy gardening and have too many plants in my apartment by any metric.
