Ph.D. Student in Computational and Mathematical Engineering, admitted Autumn 2015
Dissertation Bootcamp (DBC) Monitor, Hume Center
BioHello! I am a PhD candidate at the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME). I am proud to be advised by Professor Gianluca Iaccarino.
Some of my research interests include stochastic Galerkin methods, uncertainty quantification, polynomial chaos, applied partial differential equations, and Monte Carlo methods — though often, the academic boundaries and specific titles will overlap. Prior to graduate school, I attended Reed College as a mathematics major and worked as a software developer in Portland, OR. In 2017-18, I was a recipient of the Stanford Centennial Teaching Award. I am also a Stanford EDGE Fellow.
