Profile

"I work primarily in applied mathematics, particularly scientific computing. applications include fluid dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, shock waves, and plasma simulation. I have recently directed much of my attention toward nonlinear aves and nonlinear phenomena in hydrodynamics, and their numerical computation, also in collaboration with the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies."
