Bio


Hello! 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 for one year 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.

If you have questions about more current work, the best route is to contact me via email (lymanla@stanford.edu) directly. Thanks!
