Optimizing parallel code is hard -- so automate as much as possible.

- Fast Iterative Graph Computation with Block Updates (with Wenlei Xie, Guozhang Wang, Al Demers, and Johannes Gehrke, in Proceedings of VLDB, Vol 6, No 14)
- Making time-stepped applications tick in the cloud. (with Tao Zou, Guozhang Wang, Marcos Vaz Salles, Al Demers, Johannes Gehrke, and Walker White, SOCC 2011)

Moving toward pain-free fast direct sparse solvers for 3D PDEs.

- Slides from a workshop at Waterloo Celebrating 40 Years of Nested Dissection (with Jeff Chadwick).

Generalizing classic eigenvalue localization results (e.g. Gershgorin).

- Localization results for nonlinear eigenvalue problems (with Amanda Hood, submitted to SIMAX)
- Nonlinear Gershgorin talk at SIAM AN 13

Building simulation tools to understand the challenges in miniaturizing the current gyro-of-choice for space applications. Success means MEMS IN SPACE!

- Imperfections in Solid-Wave Gyroscope Dynamics (with Erdal Yilmaz, IEEE SENSORS 2013, to appear)
- Gyros in a CAD for MEMS talk at FIST 2012.

Spring 2014. TR, 8:40-9:55, Philips 219.

Overview of high performance scientific computing. Basics of modern parallel machine design, parallel programming patterns, and applications. Programming projects will likely inspire creative cursing, mostly due to the frustrations of parallel profiling and debugging.

Ongoing. MWF, 1:25-2:15, Upson 315.

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.

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.
