I'm a member of the mathematics faculty at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Nevada Reno. I graduated from Indiana University Department of Mathematics where I received my PhD under the supervision of Ciprian Foias. After that I was supported by an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship to work with Edriss Titi in the Department of Mathematics at University of Califormia Irvine. My research interests are Navier-Stokes equations, dynamical systems, fractal dimensions and turbulence. Techniques used include functional analysis and large-scale numerical simulation. I'm currently working on the normal form of the Navier-Stokes equations, the Lagrangian averaged Navier-Stokes alpha model of turbulence, numerically determining modes, almost homogeneous spaces and the bioremediation of contaminated soil.
I built a Beowulf cluster called PDEwulf to use in my research.
I gave a talk titled Discrete in Time Data Assimilation for the 2D Navier-Stokes Equations at the workshop on Navier-Stokes equations at Texas A&M University in College Station February 17, 2012.
I gave a talk entitled Discrete Data Assimilation Using Arbitrary Interpolants at the 9th AIMS Conference on Dynamical Systems, Differential Equations and Applications in Orlando, Florida on July 2, 2012.
I taught Mathematics 330 Linear Algebra I Summer semester 2012 at UNR.
I taught Mathematics 181 Honors Calculus I, Mathematics 701 Numerical Analysis I and Mathematics 715 Applied Complex Analysis Fall semester 2012 at UNR.
I gave a talk titled Continuouse Data Assimilation using Arbitrary Interpolant Observables at the workshop on Navier-Stokes equations at Indiana University in Bloomington February 9, 2013.
I am teaching Mathematics 182 Honors Calculus II and Mathematics 702 Numerical Analysis II Spring semester 2013 at UNR.
