Department: Mathematics.

Academic Status: Graduate Student.

What conference theme areas are you interested in (check all that apply):

Computational science and machine learning;
Statistical modeling, methods, and computation;
Multiscale, multiphysics, and multilevel methods;
High performance software: packages and design;
Algorithms at extreme scales;
High-order methods, novel discretizations, and scalable solvers;
Applications in science, engineering, and industry;
Scientific simulation and uncertainty;
Numerical optimization: methods and applications.


My academic interests are, in short, in numerical methods for problems in Multi-physics both deterministic and stochastic. In order to develop and implement novel and efficient algorithms I study several topics from four areas:

Algorithms, data structures, parallel programming from computer science. Electromagnetics, optics and fluid mechanics from physics. Functional analysis, stochastic processes and variational theory of differential equations from theoretical analysis. Finite element and virtual element methods as well as mimetic finite difference methods from numerical analysis.

Non-Work Related Activities/Interests: 

Graduate school takes most of my time. However, mathematics has become a passion and I often study topics, particularly in analysis, in my free time. I do not necessarily consider this as work.

Music is another driver for me, and when I get a chance I like to go out to listen to classical, orchestrated music. Opera is my favourite. I like to go out dancing as well, it is always a comfortable getaway.

Exercise is another get-away activity of mine, track running in particular. I try to run 10-15 miles weekly.
