Research Interests

I work in the numerical solution of partial differential equations, especially those modeling ecological systems. My focus is both on the development of accurate and efficient numerical methods and the use of these methods to describe the dynamics of these systems. Development of adaptive numerical procedures for both finite differences and spectral methods. At this time my research focus is in computational ecology where I develop, analyze and simulate models of multi-species ecological communities.
