I am a Lecturer on Computational Science at the Harvard Institude for Applied Computational Science (IACS). I was previously a post-doctoral associate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at MIT, working with Professor Anthony Patera, and before that I attended the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar and obtained a Ph.D. in Numerical Analysis with Professor Endre Süli. I am originally from Perth, Western Australia, and graduated from the University of Western Australia in 2004.

My research interests are in the areas of Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing. I focus on numerical discretizations of partial differential equations, with an emphasis on both theory and implementation of numerical methods. I am interested in applying numerical methods to a range of different of different continuum mechanics application areas, including fluid dynamics, heat transfer, solid mechanics and acoustics. Currently my main research interests are on model reduction of parametrized partial differential equations via the Reduced Basis method (see Research).

I am teaching AM205 in Fall 2011 and AM274 in Spring 2012 (see Teaching for more details).
