My background is in Mathematics with focus on some geometrical and computational aspects. My interests are all sorts of numerical methods and discretization techniques for Scientific Computing and Computer Graphics. I graduated from the PhD program in Applied Mathematics at NJIT in May 2018 and I am currently a PostDoctoral Research Associate at the University of Colorado at Boulder, under the supervision of Jed Brown developing an efficient, extensible, portable mathematical library (libCEED), within the Center for Efficient Exascale Discretization (CEED) of the Exascale Computing Project (ECP): a collaborative effort of the Office of Science (OOS) and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) of the Department of Energy (DOE).
