numerical linear algebra
scientific computation
constrained optimization
numerical solution of partial differential equations


My research interests fall in the broad category of scientific computing. I am primarily interested in numerical linear algebra, and in particular, in investigating and implementing iterative techniques for efficiently solving large sparse linear systems that arise in various areas of applications, ranging from partial differential equations to constrained optimization problems.
