## Students

Cory Wright | I supervised Cory during the 2017 Sandia CCR summer student program, and also for the spring semester of 2018. During this time, Cory performed mathematical analysis of various discretizations of peridynamics. |

Payton Lindsay | With Arun Prakash, Payton’s Ph.D. advisor at Purdue, I co-supervised Payton from 2013-2016, including summers Payton spent at Sandia as a summer student intern. During this time, Payton developed the first multi-time-stepping method for a nonlocal model, peridynamics. I also served as a member of Payton’s Ph.D. committee. |

Canio Hoffarth | With Dave Littlewood, I co-supervised Canio Hoffarth during the 2012 Sandia CSRI summer student program. During this time, Canio conducted numerical simulations of compaction of granular material using the peridynamic code Peridigm. Canio also developed and implemented several capabilities into Peridigm, including new compute classes, a new contact algorithm incorporating friction, and useful post-processing tools. |

Kirk Soodhalter | I supervised Kirk Soodhalter during the 2011 Sandia CSRI summer student program. During this time, Kirk developed and implemented a block version of the Krylov subspace recycling solver GCRODR within Trilinos, and tested it in the fluid-DFT code Tramonto. |

Kapil Ahuja | I supervised Kapil Ahuja during the 2010 Sandia CSRI summer student program. During this time, Kapil applied Krylov subspace recycling solvers to climate modeling and uncertainty quantification applications. |

Pablo Seleson | I supervised Pablo Seleson during the 2008 Sandia CSRI summer student program. I continued my collaborations with Pablo after his visit, and was a member of his Ph.D. committee, chaired by Prof. Max Gunzburger. Pablo won the student paper prize at the 33rd SIAM Southeastern-Atlantic Section Conference for our joint paper, Peridynamics as an Upscaling of Molecular Dynamics. Pablo graduated from the Dept. of Scientific Computing at Florida State University in 2010. |
