My research interests are numerical analysis of Monte Carlo and data assimilation methods and their applications. I create and analyze methods and algorithms that are useful in applications in science and engineering, for example in numerical weather prediction or for studying geomagnetic dipole reversals.
My research is supported by NSF, NRL and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
Please download my publications here.
I have been a teaching assistant for undergraduate classes in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Department of Physics at the University of California at Berkeley, and for the Department of Electrical Engineering at TU Darmstadt (Germany).
