Affiliation and Research Interests

I am a project scientist in the Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE) in the Computing Sciences Area at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. I am currently working on the Energy Research and Forecasting (ERF) project on simulations of atmospheric flows in CCSE and parallel discrete events simulations for computational fluid dynamics in the Computer Architecture Group (CAG). Here are the links to my Google Scholar page and LinkedIn profile. Two of my AMReX related works can be found in the AMReX Gallery under the sections - Moving bodies in compressible flow and Atomization of a liquid jet.
