Currently teaching

Matrix Computations (CS 6210)

Fall 2016. MWF 11:15-12:05 PM, Hollister Hall 306.

Numerical linear algebra. Basic theory, efficient algorithms, and enough error analysis to avoid numerical embarrassment (we hope)! Direct and iterative methods for linear systems, least squares, and eigenvalues.

SCAN Seminar (CS/MATH 7290)

    Ongoing. M 1:25-2:15, Gates 406.

    The Scientific Computing and Numerics seminar series focuses on various methods in scientific computing, the analysis of convergence properties and computational efficiency, and their adaptation to specific applications.

    Projects (CS [45]999)

      See my list of projects!

      If nothing on the list appeals but you think you’d like to work with me on something, come knock on my door. I don’t bite.
