Personal website:


I hold a PhD in Applied Math and I have mainly worked in scientific computing, seeking numerical solutions of partial differential equations that can arise in fluid dynamics, solid mechanics and other scenarios. In CliMA, I have mostly contributed to the dynamical core (dycore), the discretization software library for for the atmosphere and land components, and other model development aspects.
