We make use of tools from probability theory, the theory of partial differential equations, and numerical analysis, to analyze interesting physical phenomena and to design, analyze, and apply new computational techniques for applications in the sciences and engineering. Current focus areas include:

  • data assimilation techniques

  • Monte Carlo methods

  • multiscale modeling and simulation

  • randomized numerical linear algebra

  • rare event analysis and simulation

A significant portion of research in the group is organized around long term collaborations with application domain experts in areas including:

  • biophysics

  • computational chemistry

  • extreme climate and weather events
