My work mostly concerns the development of mathematical and computational methodologies for the study of various mechanical dynamics found in solids, fluids and their interactions. Although an applied mathematician by training, I am also a computational scientist and work closely with folks in other disciplines on the deployment of such tools for physics-based and data-driven problems in, e.g., engineering, geophysics and medicine.
Originally from Austin (Texas), I have a PhD from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena and a BA from Rice University in Houston. 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 (POEMS). I subsequently held Visiting Research Scholar and Postdoctoral Research Associate positions at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
I have also taught (applied mathematics) in both the US and France at Rice, Caltech and École des Ponts.
