I develop mathematical and computational methods for studying the dynamics of wave propagation in solids, fluids and their interactions. An applied mathematician by training, I work closely with physicists and engineers on realistic problems of scientific and industrial relevance in geophysics, biomedicine and mechanical engineering.
I have a PhD from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and a BA from Rice University. After working for some time at an aerospace engineering startup in Los Angeles, I returned to academia by way of Paris via research postdocs at INRIA and ENSTA. I have also taught in both the US and France at Rice, Caltech and École des Ponts.
