Ron Estrin
Ph.D. Student in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2014
BioI am a PhD candidate working on problems in numerical linear algebra and optimization (in particular, nonconvex problems with nonlinear constraints) with my doctoral advisor Michael Saunders, as well as with Michael Friedlander and Dominique Orban. Prior to beginning my PhD, I completed my BSc with a Combined Honours in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of British Columbia. During my time at UBC I also completed a senior thesis with Chen Greif, studying saddlepoint matrices exhibiting certain special structure.

Philip Etter
Ph.D. Student in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2017
BioI'm a first year PhD student in the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering. I received my undergrad degree from Princeton, where I studied mathematics, computer science, and physics  and wrote my thesis on numerical methods for solitonic boson star evolution and ground state searching. While I have a very broad background in mathematics and related fields, I most enjoy working on numerical PDE problems arising from the physical sciences. My other assorted interests include quantum physics, general relativity, algorithms, and computer graphics.
I prefer tabs to spaces and emacs to vim.
