Welcome!

Our research is in computational applied mathematics, including numerical analysis, mathematical modelling and software. We are interested in taking challenging science or engineering problems and identifying efficient computational strategies to address them. We work with domain specialists, as well as computer scientists, high performance computing specialists, and with industry. We use methods from analysis (especially numerical analysis), geometry, probability, and statistics in our work. We also incorporate and rely on many concepts from statistical physics and theoretical chemistry. We develop our own industrial-strength software for various applications, an increasingly demanding part of our work.
