| ## Numerical Algorithms and Software for Free-Surface FlowsI develop and study mathematical models, numerical algorithms and software for problems in computational geophysics. In particular, I focus on a range of hazardous free-surface flows, ranging from tsunamis and general flooding to landslides, debris flows and lahars. These phenomena are not only related geophysically, they are also often modeled with governing equations that share many similar mathematical properties. ## Contact Information1300 SE Cardinal Court, Bldg. 10 Vancouver, WA 98683-9589 360-993-8932 360-993-8980 - Fax Back to top |
