Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests / Projects

Numerical Relativity, Astrophysics, Computational Physics

Lately I've been working with Richard Matzner and Mike Vitalo on a multigrid solver for domains containing holes. I've recently written a feature story about this for the supercomputer center, and this story is here.

...And doing some work with Erik Schnetter on 3D evolutions in general relativity using fixed mesh refinement (FMR) via Erik's FMR package, which is a Cactus thorn.


Hey, get a load of these citations in the CQG promo page for Numerical Relativity.
