Ph.D. Student in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2017
BioMy academic background is in Computational Fluid Dynamics, Finite Element Analysis, and Continuum Mechanics with an M.S. in Engineering Science and Mechanics from Penn State University. I am becoming more and more intrigued by data analytics & applying machine learning techniques to social sciences and networks.
Outside of academia, my interests include consuming music at all times (digitally and at live shows), competing on various Ultimate Frisbee teams (Club and National levels), cooking, and generally exploring the surrounding area.

My students and I devise new algorithms to improve the imaging of reflection seismic data. Images obtained from seismic data are the main source of information on the structural and stratigraphic complexities in Earth's subsurface. These images are constructed by processing seismic wavefields recorded at the surface of Earth and generated by either active-source experiments (reflection data), or by far-away earthquakes (teleseismic data). The high-resolution and fidelity of 3-D reflection-seismic images enables oil companies to drill with high accuracy for hydrocarbon reservoirs that are buried under two kilometers of water and up to 15 kilometers of sediments and hard rock. To achieve this technological feat, the recorded data must be processed employing advanced mathematical algorithms that harness the power of huge computational resources. To demonstrate the advantages of our new methods, we process 3D field data on our parallel cluster running several hundreds of processors.
I teach a course on seismic imaging for graduate students in geophysics and in the other departments of the School of Earth Sciences. I run a research graduate seminar every quarter of the year. This year I will be teaching a one-day short course in 30 cities around the world as the SEG/EAGE Distinguished Instructor Short Course, the most important educational outreach program of these two societies.
