Research Statement:


I was involved in the design, development and efficient implementation of parallel computing methodologies. The project I worked on aimed at solving time-dependent PDEs in a rarely exploited time-parallel fashion, by dividing the time domain -- as opposed to the space domain for which decomposition techniques have reached maturity -- into independent pieces on which processing can be concurrently applied. My research focused primarily on problems arising from nonlinear structural dynamics.
