I am a fifth-year Mathematics graduate student at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, advised by Adam Larios. My current interests are primarily in the use of data assimilation to recover solutions to dynamical systems of turbulent fluids. In particular, I have been studying the Azouani-Olson-Titi algorithm for continuous data assimilation, which applies a feedback-control term at the PDE level for general dissipative dynamical systems. I am interested in applying data assimilation to interesting dynamical systems, which include using it for ocean modeling. I am also interested in the computational aspects of simulating the solutions to PDEs, particularly for fluid dynamics. A copy of my CV is available here.
