Marc works in The Center for Computational Sciences and Engineering (CCSE), developing algorithms for large-scale scientific computing for complex fluid flow problems. Marc has contributed to projects associated with compressible and low Mach number astrophysics, compressible and low Mach number terrestrial combustion, and reacting multiphase flows in subsurface porous media. The common theme is the development of highly efficient algorithms that exploit known separations in scale (spatial and/or temporal). Most recently, Marc has begun to explore uncertainty propagation in large complex applications using techniques based on Markov chain Monte Carlo and implicit sampling. Detailed descriptions of Marc's research are available through the CCSE research links.

Outside of work I been a drummer all my life. I play in a number of bands (alternative pop, country rock, hard rock) and sit in with a number of folks whenever I can.
