numerical analysis, differential geometry

Personal Overview

I develop numerical methods for problems in differential geometry. A main theme is that these methods should be high-order and structure-preserving, or, informally, both quantitatively and qualitatively accurate. For my publications and my presentation slides, see my research website.

If you are an undergraduate student interested in a capstone project or a graduate student interested in working with me, please send me an email.
