This guy!


Welcome to my webpage at NCSU. I am a postdoc in applied mathematics working with Ralph Smith. I am currently researching methods to improve the uncertainty quantification for predictive simulation of oscillatory systems and systems with model discrepancies. I am also developing code for the validation of Bayesian calibration routines in the software packages QUESO and DAKOTA. My dissertation research involved several computational and design problems related to the control and simulation of smart materials exhibiting hysteretic nonlinearities.

Research Interests: Applied analysis, scientific computing, uncertainty quantification, control theory, numerical analysis, nonlinear systems, and inverse problems.

Curriculum Vitae

Update (May 29, 2014): I have accepted a two-year postdoctoral position through the University of Dayton Research Institute carried out at the Air Force Research Laboratory in the Dayton, Ohio area. I will be working on developing, verifying, and applying mathematical and computational methods for uncertainty quantification and the solution of inverse problems related to non-destructive evaluation and materials science.

Miscellaneous Notes

Here are some incomplete notes I wrote a while back:
