My research focuses in thermal and fluid sciences and in uncertainty quantification (UQ) in multiphyics and multiscale simulations. I am interested in the high performance computing aspect of computational engineering and UQ along with their applicability to the emerging exascale architectures.

I am a biomechanical engineer by training. I received my Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 2008 at the University of Maryland, Baltimore county. My Ph.D. research focused in multiscale transport phenomena in biological tissues with a focus on magnetic nanoparticle hyperthermia for cancer treatment.

Research Interests

  • Fault-tolerant algorithm development for large-scale PDE solvers
  • Data compression using compressive sensing and wavelets.
  • Multi-scale transport phenomena and reactive flows in porous media e.g. metal hydrides.

I am currently the PI of a project funded by Sandia’s Laboratory Directed R & D program.

I publish papers, technical reports as well as release open-source software. You can access them on the left-hand side of this page.
