Research Interest

My research team embraces the open-science ideology for repeatibility and reproducibility. Research codes are provided on open source hosting sites, such as github (, to facilitate collaborations within the lab as well as researchers within the institution. Self contained usage examples with representative data is provided as a starting point to facility reproducibility of the results. Our coding projects leverage several state of the art and actively developed software packages such as Slicer, DAKOTA, PETSc, ITK, and libMesh. This approach will facilitate collaborations with top level researchers in scientific computing on a state and national scale.
