I teach programming and computational courses in the MS in Analytics Program. I am also Practicum Director. I've consulted for a number of clients in the finance and software industries. My primary research interests are in the application of high performance computing and machine learning to problems arising in large-scale and real-time data analytics and modeling. I am co-chair of the workshop on high performance computational finance at SC'13 and am a committee member of the GARP San Francisco Chapter. I'm a former Krener Assistant Professor in computational and applied mathematics at UC Davis and postdoctoral researcher in the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering at Stanford University. I graduated in 2007 with a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from Imperial College, London. More about my research.
