BioCooper Elsworth is a PhD candidate in the Department of Geophysics and MS student in Computational Mathematics & Engineering at Stanford University. As a member of the SIGMA group, his research focuses on the coupled processes governing streaming ice flow in Western Antarctica. Previously, he attended Penn State University, where he completed BS and MS degrees in Engineering Mechanics, focusing on computational methods for fluid-structure interaction. His research interests include coupled systems, fluid dynamics, glaciology and computational mechanics.

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 saddle-point matrices exhibiting certain special structure.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am currently developing a novel approach to reduced basis methods based on numerical linear algebra techniques. Reduced basis methods are model order reduction techniques which can solve large collections of similar PDEs by exploiting sparsity in the underlying solution space. Applications range from the computation of radar cross-sections to uncertainty quantification.
