I am a Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS) Postdoctoral Fellow working with Professor Ben Adcock at Simon Fraser University (SFU). I am also VP Internal of the SFU Postdoctoral Association. I studied mathematics at the University of Tennessee under Clayton Webster, and worked in the Computational and Applied Mathematics Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
My research interests are in machine learning, sparse polynomial approximations, compressed sensing, optimization, applied & computational harmonic analysis, parameterized PDE problems, and numerical analysis.
