I am a PhD candidate in the Institute of Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) at Stanford advised by Professor Margot Gerritsen. I have been funded by the NSF graduate research fellowship. I received my bachelor's degree in Applied Mathematics with highest honors from the University of California, Berkeley in 2012. I then continued onto my graduate education at ICME and earned my Masters in Computational and Mathematical Engineering in 2015. I have had internships in computational mathematics at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (2012-2014) and NVIDIA (2015). At the LBL, I worked in the Computational Research Division under Professor James Sethian, applying multiphase flow algorithms to shape optimization problems. At NVIDIA, I worked in the numerical linear algebra and graph analytics group. My current research is on developing new, accurate, stable and conservative numerical methods for mathematical modeling of ocean dynamics.
