Curriculum Vitae
Research Interests
  • Numerical linear algebra (subspace computations, iterative eigensolvers)
  • Optimization on Riemannian manifolds
  • Scientific computing (large scale solvers)

I enrolled at Florida State University as a mathematics major in 1998. I began my research in summer of 2001 with Kyle Gallivan at the School of Computational Science. In the spring of 2002, I graduated from FSU with a Bachelor of Science in both Computer Science and Pure Mathematics.

I defended my Master's thesis, "A Block Incremental Algorithm for Computing Dominant Singular Subspaces", in April of 2004, and graduated with an MS in Computer Science in the summer of 2004.

In the fall of 2004, I began the Ph.D. program in Computer Science and was admitted into candidacy in the fall of 2005. During the time that I wrote my dissertation, I participated in three internships at Sandia National Labs, where I worked on the Anasazi eigensolvers package in the Trilinos project, as well as the Salinas structural dynamics finite element code. I successfully defended my dissertation in May 2005 in the School of Computational Science.

In June 2008, I began a post-doc at Sandia in the Scalable Algorithms department with Mike Heroux. In September, I left Sandia for a staff position in the Computational Engineering and Energy Studies Department at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
