## Research highlights

#### Optimizing stellarators

Advancing magnetic confinement fusion through optimization and hidden symmetries.

#### Spectral network analysis

Fast spectral tools for graph structure.

#### Nonlinear eigenvalue bounds

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

#### Parallel surrogate optimization

Asynchronous parallel algorithms for finding minima fast by fitting functions to surrogate models.

## CU Scientific Software Club

#### Cornell University Scientific SW

Building a community of practice for scientific computing at Cornell.

## Postdoc ad

I am seeking a postdoc to work with me at Cornell as part of the Simons collaboration on Hidden Symmetries and Fusion Energy. You should have a PhD in applied mathematics, physics, CS, or related areas and know something about design and analysis of numerical methods; previous experience with plasma physics, while surely helpful, is by no means required.

Apply here! Preferably by Dec 31, 2018, though the search will remain open until the position has been filled.
