Research Interests

Research in my group focuses on integral equation methods for electromagnetics, acoustics, elasticity, plasma physics and fluid dynamics. We are developing fast solvers for each of these applications in complex geometry, and extending “analysis-based fast solvers ” to kernel-based methods in statistical inference.
