Current Research and Scholarly InterestsResearch
My work is about understanding and simulating complicated fluid flow problems. My research focuses on the design of highly accurate and efficient parallel computational methods to predict the performance of enhanced oil recovery methods. I'm particularly interested in gas injection and in-situ combustion processes. These recovery methods are extremely challenging to simulate because of the very strong nonlinearities in the governing equations. Outside petroleum engineering, I'm active in coastal ocean simulation with colleagues from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, yacht research and pterosaur flight mechanics with colleagues from the Department of Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering, and the design of search algorithms in collaboration with the Library of Congress and colleagues from the Institute of Computational and Mathematical Engineering.
I teach courses in both energy related topics (reservoir simulation, energy, and the environment) in my department, and mathematics for engineers through the Institute of Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME). I also initiated two courses in professional development in our department (presentation skills and teaching assistant training), and a consulting course for graduate students in ICME, which offers expertise in computational methods to the Stanford community and selected industries.

Professor of Management Science and Engineering
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsKay is a financial engineer. He develops stochastic financial models, designs statistical methods for analyzing financial data, examines simulation and other numerical algorithms for solving the associated computational problems, and performs empirical analyses. Much of Kay's work is driven by important applications in areas such as credit risk management, investment management, and, most recently, housing finance.

Ph.D. Student in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2016
BioI am a first year PhD student in the Institute for Computational and Mathematical engineering at Stanford University. My research interests broadly lie in Linear Algebra and optimization. I have a bachelors degree (with Honours) in Chemical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India. My undergraduate research was in the area of Computational Microfluidics. Also I did a summer research internship in Process Control at EPFL, Switzerland.
I was born and brought up in Neyveli, an industrial town in south India. I enjoy listening to Indian music and reading novels.
