Research interests:

My main research interests are in developing, analyzing, and implementing numerical methods, in particular for solving PDEs to high orders of accuracy. Such methods include pseudospectral and high accuracy finite difference methods, and methods based on radial basis functions (RBFs). Their main application areas include computational fluid dynamics, geophysical and astrophysical flows, and seismic exploration. Another interest area is computational methods in the complex plane (such as for solving the Painlevé equations, and for more general quadrature and differentiation).
