I'm a member of the mathematics faculty at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Nevada Reno. 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 realtionships between the weak separation condition and Assouad dimension, data assimilation of observational measurements with stochasitic errors and the bioremediation of contaminated soil.
I built a Beowulf cluster called PDEwulf to use in my research.
I am on sabbatical leave at the Mathematics Institute at the University of Warwick from Fall 2013 to Spring 2014.
I attended the 2013 Clay Mathematics conference in Oxford, United Kingdom between September 29 and October 4.
I attended the 2014 Joint AMS/MAA meeting in Baltimore Maryland between January 15 and 18.
I gave a talk entitled Data Assimilation at the 2D NSE using Noisy Data Workshop on Analysis of Nonlinear PDEs and Fluid Flows on January 20 in the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
I gave a talk entitled The Weak Separation Condition and Assouad Dimension: A precise Dichotomy on the Real Line at the 2014 Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems Seminar in University of Warwick, United Kingdom on February 11.
I will be speaking on the Data Assimilation in the Presence of Stochastic Noise at the 2014 AMS Sectional Meeting hosted by Texas Tech University in Lubbock Texsas between April 11 and 13.
I will be teaching Mathematics 181 Honors Calculus I and Mathematics/Computer Science 466/666 Numerical Methods I Fall semester 2014 at UNR.
