I'm a member of the mathematics faculty in applied mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics 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 relationships between the weak separation condition and Assouad dimension, data assimilation of observational measurements with stochastic errors and the bioremediation of contaminated soil.
I built a Beowulf cluster called PDEwulf to use in my research.
I spoke in the session on Data Assimilation in Geophysical Applications at the University of Oxford 38th Conference on Stochastic Processes and their Applications, from 13th to 17th July 2015.
I taught Math 181 Calculus I and Math 285 Differential Equations Fall 2015.
I spoke at the 2015 SIAM Conference on Analysis of Partial Differential Equations December 7-10, 2015 in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.
I taught Math 181 Calculus I and Math 715 Complex Analysis Spring 2016.
I spoke at the Workshop on Data Assimilation of Determining Forms held at University of Minnesota on June 21, 2016 just before the 2016 IMA Workshop in Honor of George Sell. The title of the talk was On the Residual Error in the NS-alpha Family of Turbulence Models.
I spoke at the 11th AIMS Conference on Dynamical Systems, Differential Equations and Applications in Orlando, Florida on July 1-5, 2016.
