Research Statement

My research area is the study of novel computational algorithms for the numerical solution of partial differential equations (p.d.e.s). The approach I've has taken in this research has been to derive numerical methods and develop software on both serial and parallel computers for a broad, mathematically-defined problem class in which the equations are decoupled in space and time. This has made it possible for users from different physical applications areas to solve their problems by creating a mathematical model which fits inside the general problem class.

My recent past work has been part of the CSAFE DOE funded center CSAFE

 

The key aspects of this work in CSAFE have been connected to thie Uintah code and the methods it uses, e.g. to

  • Help develop a better understanding of the MPM (material point method) as used in Uintah
  • Help improve the ICE fluid-flow method used in Uintah
  • Help devise new parallel adaptive mesh algorithms to control the computational error
  • Work on approaches for helping the Uintah code to scale better

Following the end of CSAFE NSF funding has helped to get Uintah released and improved Uintah Release

Uintah now scales to 98K cores on the NSF Kraken computer.
