about

I am a graduate student in geophysics at UC Berkeley. This blog is meant to be a place to write down various musings that I have about Earth and planetary science, geology, applied mathematics, scientific computing, and whatever else strikes me as interesting.

My primary resesarch interests lie in the dynamics of planetary mantles, which I study through a combination of numerical and analytical techniques. I am also interested in the thermal evolution of planets, fluid dynamics, computational mineral physics, and numerical methods for scientific computing

Here is an educational application that I wrote for learning about the physics of convection, earthquakes and mantle dynamics.

I am a contributor to the open-source mantle convection software ASPECT.

I am one of the developers of the mantle mineral physics toolkit Burnman.

Here is a picture:
