My work lies at the intersection of numerical linear and multilinear algebra, scientific computing, and high-performance computing (HPC). I am particularly interested in
f(A)b: functions of large, sparse matrices and their action on a vector
Bivariate matrix functions
Krylov subspace methods, especially their scalability via communication-reducing techniques for HPC
FAIR data principles in scientific software
Open access in scientific publishing
Publications, pre-prints, and technical reports
As much as legally possible, I have tried to make all my work open access. Please try OAButton if you are having trouble finding a paper.

Errata: Algorithms 5 & 7 have a typo in the last couple lines, where the dimension s is written. It should be p. The code is written correctly.

Past work and interests
Train schedule optimization
In the summer of 2015, I spent two months at the Zuse Institut Berlin working on train schedule optimization as a part of GRIPS (Graduate-level Research in Industrial Projects for Students), a program coordinated in part by the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics. A summary of my team's work is provided as a technical report.
As an undergraduate at Temple University, I researched traffic modeling under Benjamin Seibold. I presented my work, Five Dimensions of Traffic as a poster for the 2012 Undergraduate Research Symposium at Temple University and also for Mid-Atlantic Numerical Analysis Day 2012.
